Sou Fujimoto's Serpentine Pavilion

Exciting news this morning out of Kensington Gardens! Sou Fujimoto has designed the Serpentine Pavilion for 2013. Fujimoto had this to say about his design: “The delicate quality of the structure, enhanced by its semi-transparency, will create a geometric, cloud-like form, as if it were mist rising from the undulations of the park. From certain vantage points, the Pavilion will appear to merge with the classical structure of the Serpentine Gallery, with visitors suspended in space.” It sounds stunning and if he’s able to achieve a quality similar to the renderings, the pavilion will be phenomenal.  Oddly enough, to me it looks like a larger and more complex version of another recent project: No Dog, No Life.
