Award-winning Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto was invited to design the Pavilion, a temporary structure for the Serpentine Gallery 2013. The three-dimensional structure occupies some 357 square-meters of lawn in front of the Serpentine Gallery. Each unit comprises fine steel bars of 800 and 400 mm rectangles forming a semi-transparent, irregular canopy. It has two entrances and a series of stepped terraces that provide seating areas for visitors. The Pavilion may be used as a flexible, multi-purpose social area that appears to merge with the classical structure of the Serpentine Gallery and makes visitors look like they are suspended in space.
