He took the opportunity to further explain the thinking that has propelled his life&rsquo;s work, and the origin story behind the structure. The Summer House, Friedman explained, &ldquo;was improvised from small models that I was putting together and it was reproduced. And for me the most important [thing was] that anyone could make this, and I made this experiment and it was built by children.&rdquo;</p></em><br /><br /><p>Yona Friedman officially describes his ephemeral, elegantly 16mm steel-framed Serpentine Summer House as "a space-chain construction of 4 + 1 levels...composed of cubes defined by 6 circles of 1.85 metre in diameter" that rest upon the ground.
