Sou Fujimoto stands inside his Serpentine Gallery pavilion

The youngest-ever architect to design a summer pavilion for the Serpentine, Sou Fujimoto plays with the distinction between inside and outside space and once based a house on a climbing frame. He has delivered a cloud-shaped structure made of fine steel latticework that people can move in and out of at will. Here’s a selection of images of the design, via The Guardian:
