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“.
