Architect Sou Fujimoto’s radical designs make us re-think the way we relate to space. Characterized by open layouts, experimentation, and the blending of nature and design, his buildings may feature tiny trees emerging from the walls or staggered platforms in place of floors and furniture. His first major overseas commission, a summer pavilion for London’s Serpentine Gallery in 2013, skyrocketed his career, leading to a string of prestigious projects around the world. He has also been an active participant in Home-for-All, a project to build vibrant community spaces for the people affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan’s Sendai region. Join him at Japan Society for a discussion on his novel approach to architecture and the exciting ventures ahead. Followed by a reception.
