Serpentine Pavillion

June 2013

Sou Fujimoto youngest-ever architect to design a summer pavilion for the Serpentine.
The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013, designed by Sou Fujimoto, opens tonight. Widely acknowledged as one of the most important architects coming to prominence worldwide, Sou Fujimoto (born 1971) is the leading light of an exciting generation of artists who are re-inventing our relationship with the built environment. Inspired by organic structures, such as the forest, the nest and the cave, Fujimoto's signature buildings inhabit a space between nature and artificiality.
