Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013 by Sou Fujimoto

Award-winning Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto was selected to design this year’s Serpentine Pavilion. Every year, a different artist is chosen to design a temporary building for the lawn outside the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens.

Fujimoto is the 13th and, at 41, the youngest architect to be selected for the commission. Previous Pavilions have been designed by Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei, Frank Gehry, and Zaha Hadid.

This year’s Pavilion is made from a lattice of steel poles, giving a delicate, lightweight appearance. Inside the Pavilion you’ll find a cafĂ© and a variety of different events over the summer.

Describing the building, Fujimoto said: “It will form a semi-transparent, irregular ring, simultaneously protecting visitors from the elements while allowing them to remain part of the landscape“.
