Yumm, can we have your leftovers?

I have an artistic crush on Frank Gehry. London's beloved Serpentine Gallery commissioned him to design its outdoor showcase in 2008. As they appoint a different world famous architect to recreate the pavilion each year, this gorgeous structure was replaced with a design by Sanaa in 2009.

It seems to me that Istanbul will never have its promised Frank Gehry building. The project he draw to replace the ugly TRT building in Tepebasi will remain in 2D as the Turkish government is determined to not grant permission for it.

So, since London is done with the pavilion, can we have the leftovers?
It is such a shame to discard it and I have a perfect place in mind.
