A space that won't only attract visitors eager to take part in the upcoming cultural programs, but, yes, in plenty of picture-takery, too. The Serpentine Pavilion will surely be a superstar on the social feeds of LA camera-wielders for months to come.

Soon to come? Look for an announcement about "a community culture marathon, a weekend dedicated to supporting non-profits and social impact organizations, demonstrating the vibrant communities and culture of the city."

“We’ve fallen in love with Los Angeles - its beauty and chaos, its light and shadows, its contradictions, sub-cultures and people,” says Sam Aldenton, Co-Founder of Second Home. “The Second Home Pavilion is a celebration of this: our love letter to LA.” Find a fanciful expression of this love, and enjoy it for free, for the next five months, at what's called "the world's only active excavation of an Ice Age fossil site." It's a mash-up so marvelous that it has to be experienced in all of its iridescent magic.
