The Serpentine Gallery annually commissions one of the outstanding modern architects to design a unique temporary project, summer pavilion in Kensington Gardens. The authorship of this year pavilion belongs to the youngest member of the program, Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto who designed the harmonic space for nature, human, and art.

Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto is known for combining artificial and organic structures. Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013 is one of his original spaces where both nature and human exist as equals.

Transparent latticed structure of steel poles can be associated with an avant-garde castle or a cloud. This gigantic three-dimensional matrix is a reflection of the contemporary digital aesthetics, but also a social space.

Sou Fujimoto explains: “For the 2013 Pavilion I propose an architectural landscape: a transparent terrain that encourages people to interact with and explore the site in diverse ways. Within the pastoral context of Kensington Gardens, I envisage the vivid greenery of the surrounding plant life woven together with a constructed geometry. A new form of environment will be created, where the natural and the man-made merge; not solely architectural nor solely natural, but a unique meeting of the two.”

Fujimoto’s signature buildings inhabit a space between nature and artificiality. Among them are the domestic projects, such as Final Wooden House, T House and House N, and the institutional, such as the Musashino Art Museum and Library at Musashino Art University.
