More details of Junya Ishigami's craggy Serpentine Pavilion revealed in full photo set

This slideshow of images by photographer Ste Murray offers a closer look at the rocky canopy that forms this year's Serpentine Pavilion by Japanese architect Junya Ishigami.

Ishigami's design sees 61 tonnes of Cumbrian slate used to create a mountain-like roof structure outside the Serpentine Gallery in London. This is supported by a "basket" roof and slender steel columns.

The pavilion was unveiled earlier today, but the news has been overshadowed by the announcement that Serpentine CEO Yana Peel has resigned.

Murray's photos offer a more detailed look at the pavilion's architectural features, such as the way the roof curves down at the corners and the underside of the expansive slate canopy.

Following a legal complaint, the Guardian removed its article of 14 June 2019 and apologised to Mrs Peel. We are happy to clarify that Yana Peel is not, and was not, personally involved in the operation or decisions of the regulated Novalpina Capital investment fund, which is managed by her husband Stephen Peel, and others. Mrs Peel was not involved in any decision-making relating to the fund’s acquisition of NSO. Mrs Peel only has a small, indirect and passive interest in the fund. She does not own, whether directly or indirectly, any Novalpina Capital entity.
