This pavilion is designed by Sou Fujimoto, the youngest-ever architect to do this kind of job for the Serpentine Gallery (an art gallery in Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, central London).
As you can see on the pictures, Fujimoto plays with the distinction between inside and outside space in a pretty unique way. The pavilion is kind of a cloud-shaped building made by fine steel latticework, letting people move in and out at will. To me, it looks pretty confusing, but it seem to be fully functional for conferences and cafe’s.
The pavilion is located in front of the gallery and covers 357 square meter of the lawn.
Fujimoto is 41 years old and- as I mentioned – the youngest architect to have accepted the request to design a temporary structure for the gallery.
To me it looks a little bit scary to walk around in that organized clutter of steel, but it sure looks cool, doesn’t it?
