Dezeen has teamed up with publishing house Thames & Hudson to give readers the opportunity to win one of five copies of The New Pavilions book.

A new release from the global publisher, The New Pavilions features a carefully curated collection of architectural pavilions from around the world.

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.

Norwegian architecture practice Snøhetta also features in the book thanks to its reindeer observation pavilion in the Dovre Mountains.

With offices in London and New York, Thames & Hudson looks to create books that offer an international insight into art, architecture and other creative fields.



Competition closes 6 December.
Winners will be selected at random and notified by email, and their names will be published at the top of this page. Dezeen competitions are international and entries are accepted from readers in any country.
