General Info


Second Home Serpentine Pavilion by SelgasCano at La Brea Tar Pits

For a limited time, explore SelgasCano’s standout architectural creation, up close and personal. Each of the rainbow tunnels takes you on different journey. There are multiple ways to wander, and many entrances and exits, but they all emanate from a center area where you'll be immersed in stained glass light. The pavilion experience shifts from day to night—natural light seeps through translucent walls by day, and glowing lights illuminate its colors and surfaces once the sun goes down.
