In the projects of the Japanese architect Junya Ishigami, often shapes and elements from nature can be recognized. The recently opened Serpentine Pavilion is no exception. Ishigami, our Guest of Honor in 2010, describes his installation as "a hill made of stones". A slender steel structure supports a slate roof that floats next to the gallery like a gray, weightless cloud. The experimental 44-year-old designer is the 19th architect in the annual program of the Serpentine Gallery. Ishigami won the Golden Lion Prize in 2010 at the Biennale of Architecture in Venice.
The pavilion can be viewed in London until October 6th. All information can be found on the site of the Serpentine Gallery.
