Serpentine Gallery Pavilion



    The 2013 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion by Sou Fujimoto – the 13th architect in the series, and the youngest to accept the invitation to conceive the temporary structure – opened to press today, revealing his airy, but strict configuration within its Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park location. The cloud like appearance is a composition of 20mm pipes which are arranged in a lattice formation that invites visitors to interact with it. One may climb the rungs of its skeleton framework, taking in alternative views of the site. The lightweight and semi-transparent architecture Fujimoto’s design occupied some 30 square-meters of the lawn found in front of the art gallery, whose classical style offers an ideal backdrop for the delicate construction.
