Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has taken over the Serpentine Gallery in London with a striking installation, unveiled in a few days ago. The cloud-like structure on the lawn outside the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens is made from a white lattice of steel poles. Capturing the semi-transparent, multi-purpose social space situated in London, this delicate, three-dimensional structure is made to be enjoyed by its visitors, creating an inviting social setting.

Fujimoto, the youngest architect to accept the Serpentine Gallery’s invitation at 41, said of his work, “…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.

Don’t miss it! The installation will be in London’s Kensington Gardens until late October, make sure to stop by during the Summer.
