Perfect-Circle Wood Pavilion Sets Up Next to a Danish Castle

Not content to let this year's Serpentine Galleries pavilion and the mind-bending installation at New York City's MoMA PS1 steal all the summer architectural folly thunder, a lovely new temporary structure has popped up in a grand garden setting. Alighting on the grounds of Copenhagen's 17th-century Rosenborg Castle, the Around Pavilion is the work of local architects Mikkel Kjærgård Christiansen and Jesper Kort Andersen, who used Nordic pine for structure. The overall effect is quintessentially Scandinavian: rigorously and harmoniously designed with a dash of whimsy. The pavilion, which will stand until August 30, can be circumnavigated or you can stroll along one of the interior paths. We dig it.
