This year’s Serpentine Gallery Pavilion is designed by Sou Fujimoto. It is a delicate, 3-D structure composed of fine white steel bars, described as a “Floating Cloud”, by the architect himself.
It is an extra-ordinarily simple structure of frames, which is a multi-purpose social space. This “transparent terrain” has different levels which inter-connect, and that is perhaps what intrigues me the most about this pavilion.
The architect has also stayed true to his style of architecture, as the white finishes and frame like structures can be deemed recognisable in his other buildings, such as House N, and also House NA which was a great concept in itself.
Below are a few photographs of the Gallery.
