PHOTOGRAPHY: Serpentine Pavilion 2013 by Sou Fujimoto

I finally managed to check out 2013's Serpentine Pavilion, designed by Sou Fujimoto. The structure, made of steel poles is in line with Fujimoto's other works, exploring the dynamics of space, light, air, transparency and material. [SEE HOUSE NA]

The cloud-like structure was rather dense and could perhaps do with slightly greater variation of module sizes, but was beautiful to capture on camera. I would also love to have seen more of the structure being accessible as it physically could be, but probably due to some stringent health and safety issues, was not permitted in the design process. 

That said, this is one of the more successful designs, with loads of people using it unlike last year's pavilion which was rather deserted (perhaps due to the fact I went when it was pouring)...
