Second Home Serpentine Pavilion | She & Him Adventures

Welcome back to another She & Him Adventures! I am finally back after a month hiatus, who knew moving would be this hectic? I'm not going to lie, I was struggling to find the time to blog but I can officially say I am finally feeling settled and today I am so happy to share with you all a colorful and fun adventures that Ricky and I had a couple of weeks ago before our big move, so let's begin!
During our trip down to Los Angeles, we were lucky enough to be in town to see the incredible but temporary immersive art structure Second Home Serpentine Pavilion by SelgasCano. SelgasCano designed and built this Serpentine Pavilion for the annual architectural commission by the Serpentine Gallery in London. Now, thanks to Second Home and The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles, it’s been rebuilt in Los Angeles. This is the first time that the Serpentine Pavilion is being displayed in the United States, and Los Angeles will be its only venue.

Second Home Serpentine Pavilion is open 11 am to 7 pm daily, and is open until 9 pm on Fridays. And it's located on the lawn space directly between the La Brea Tar Pits and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. As you can tell from the picture above the entrance was closed because Ricky and I arrived a bit early, so we decided to walk around the structure while we waited.  
So far solely based on the outside, we knew this place would be an Instagrammer's paradise.
When we reached the back part of the structure we saw this beautiful opening that looked directly into the center of the structure. The sun was shinning so beautifully into the structure and the colors were so vivid, we were immediately impressed and couldn't wait to go inside.
After walking around the structure for a while it was time to enter and explore the rainbow tunnels of this immersive structure where art and science meet! I wish it was this empty at opening but boy did 15 minutes make a big difference. By the time it was time to enter, there was a large crowd waiting to go inside, maybe around 25-30 people. Oh well, but we still managed to go inside and immerse ourselves in this magical experience.
As you enter through each of the rainbow tunnels, it takes you on different journey. The main entrance was definitely my favorite because it immediately hits you with a ton of bright colors. I tried to get a picture of myself in the main entrance but unfortunately there were too many people but look at this magical entrance! So beautiful!
After walking into the structure, we decided to get away from the crowded entrance and check out the rest of the tunnels. Our first stop was the tunnel near the opening that we saw earlier, and we both agreed it looked amazing inside and out. I made sure to grab a picture in front of it before it got crowded.
Various angles inside the tunnels make it seem like you’re walking into a magical iridescent dream. So make sure to Instagram it or it didn't happen, am I right? Hehe!
Next, we enter our favorite the iridescent tunnel. We definitely took our sweet time inside this tunnel, it was visually magical.  
Whatever translucent multi-colored fabric they used inside this structure I want it! It's gorgeous! 
The colors shifted so beautifully inside this tunnel, the interior reminded us of stained glass. It was the perfect spot to take pictures, so Ricky and I decided to have a little photoshoot. 
There are multiple ways to wander inside the Second Home Serpentine Pavilion, and many entrances and exits, but they all immerse you into a different journey through the space, characterized by color and light. Ricky and I truly enjoyed ourselves here. We love immersing ourselves into art, and we highly recommend visiting the Second Home Serpentine Pavilion. Admission is free, walk-ups are welcome and it will be running through November 24. So definitely check it out, if you can!
