The Serpentine Pavilion by Fujimoto

Today we braved the unpredictable London weather and visited the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion. This year it has been designed by the very young, multi award-winning Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto. I look forward to it every year and I was not disappointed this year. Made of 200mm steel poles the lightweight structure reminded me of a spaghetti model – that every architectural student is familiar with.

It’s great for kids. Etta climbed up and down, up and down and up and down again.

She sat and pondered the structure for a brief moment

Julian wasn’t impressed by the overpriced Fortnum & Mason coffee
