The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013 is located in the Kensington Gardens of London and the wonderful structure was designed by the award-winning practice of Sou Fujimoto who is the youngest architect to accept the invitation to design such a structure at the event.

At the age of 41, the architect is one of the best architects of his generation and the buildings Fujimoto designs take their inspiration from the organic structures found in nature, such as the forest, being a bridge between the natural and the artificial.

The structure spreads over a surface of 357 square meters and is made of 20mm steel poles with a light and semi-transparent appearance which makes it blend into the landscape while also making it seem almost unreal, hinting toward the digital aesthetic. The space was designed with multiple purposes in mind and it hosts a café inside.

According to the architect, what he wished to create was an architectural landscape with a transparent terrain that permits interaction with the visitors.
