Farmer: Between Nature and Architecture

“Stepping inside, surrounded by this all-pervasive grid, feels like entering a computer mainframe, as imagined in the 1980s,” wrote Guardian critic Oliver Wainwright of Sou Fujimoto’s acclaimed 2013 Serpentine Pavilion. “It is a dazzling, Tron-like landscape of infinite white lines, the modular, cubic units of which form terraces of seating and steps, side tables and a coffee bar, as if Fujimoto has revealed an invisible geometric order of which the whole world is made.” Fujimoto discusses the merger of nature and architecture—”a transparent terrain that encourages people to interact with and explore the site in diverse ways”—in this and other recent projects.
