Architecture writer Philip Jodidio has compiled the book, selecting 80 recently completed projects that he believes best depict pavilion architecture.

"The pavilion is the architectural form of the moment, enabling emerging architects to make their mark," the publisher explained.

"Often ephemeral and orientated to a specific function, they are less expensive than their more permanent architectural cousins, which allows for more experimentation or inventiveness than in larger structures."

The book features pavilions from prominent architects such as Zaha Hadid and Sou Fujimoto but also profiles designs by lesser-known names.

"Each pavilion provides a lesson in the extreme possibilities of built form and demonstrates that many of the biggest ideas in architecture start small," states the publisher.

The Serpentine gallery pavilions make a notable appearance in the book, with both Herzog & de Meuron's 2012 construction and SelgasCano's 2015 contribution included.
