built for the shanghai project, the concept for ‘the envision pavilion’ derives from exploring the future of mankind 100 years from now in relation to architecture. sou fujimoto adopts the use of a scaffolding structure which serves as the the ‘skeleton’ rather than as the secondary material for construction. measuring with a total floor area of 670 square meters, the choice of not using partitioning and keeping the pavilion free-flowing allows an open communication among the inner spaces. overall, a sense of transparency is achieved and the area underneath serves as space for talks and events. standing as a delicate and stark contrast to the himalayas museum, visitors are invited to climb and wander up the pavilion and achieve a different perspective at an elevated height.
