The next lecturer in the New Now Next line up, on 7 May, is renowned Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto, known for his experimental solutions for housing.
One of the best-known Japanese architects today, Sou Fujimoto rose to fame after winning the Architectural Review Awards prize for emerging personalities in the world of architecture for three years in a row and in 2013 he became the youngest architect to design the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in London. In 2012 he was part of the Japanese team that won a Golden Lion award for Best National Participation at the Venice Architecture Biennale for their design of alternative housing concepts for the homes that were destroyed by the tsunami.
