Junya Ishigami Serpentine Pavilion in pictures by photographer Ste Murray

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 amid a row over spyware.

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.
