A movie filmed by Dezeen at the unveiling of the 2013 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in London. Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto explains how he used a rigid geometric grid to create a soft and natural atmosphere.

"The inspiration started from the beautiful surroundings," Fujimoto says. "I was so impressed by the beautiful green surroundings, so I tried to create in this green environment something between nature and architecture, tried to create a transparent structure that melts into the background."

To achieve this, Fujimoto created his Pavilion from a white lattice of steel poles, with variations in density creating a structure that appears more or less transparent depending on where you stand.
