Sou Fujimoto’s Cloud

A beautiful structure by acclaimed Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto, this year’s Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013 is made for sunshine. Like a cloud that’s drifted apart from its flock in the blue sky, the Pavilion is so apt for the weather, just like last year’s structure by Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei (2012), was perfect for dull rainy days.

Here are some images of the Pavilion, that invites you to clamber around its fragile looking frame, all the while bouncing back blinding white serenity.

And if you’re around London on 18 – 19 October 2013, make your way to Serpentine Gallery for The 89plus Serpentine Gallery Marathon, two days of talks, performances and so much brain food you want to swoon. A fitting finale before the Pavilion is taken down, after my experience at the Marathon last year, this is one event I won’t miss.
