Widely acknowledged as one of the most important architects coming to prominence worldwide, Sou Fujimoto (b. 1971) is the leading light of an exciting generation of artists who are re-inventing our relationship with the built environment. Inspired by organic structures, such as the forest, the nest and the cave, Fujimoto's signature buildings inhabit a space between nature and artificiality.

Describing his design concept, Sou Fujimoto said: 'For the 2013 Pavilion I propose an architectural landscape: a transparent terrain that encourages people to interact with and explore the site in diverse ways. Within the pastoral context of Kensington Gardens, I envisage the vivid greenery of the surrounding plant life woven together with a constructed geometry. A new form of environment will be created, where the natural and the man-made merge; not solely architectural nor solely natural, but a unique meeting of the two.'

In this talk - the first of a series of public events taking place in the 2013 Pavilion - Sou Fujimoto spoke about his practice and the concepts driving his designs.
