The structure designed by Sou Fujimoto is inspired by the organic shapes of nature; the architect attempts to create a new environment bringing together the artificial and the natural. The pavilion looks like an artificial nest made of steel bars 20 mm in diameter. It is a lightweight, semi-transparent flexible structure permitting visitors to feel that they are part of nature and the landscape while at the same time sheltered from the weather.
