Watch Fujimoto's Serpentine Pavilion Light Up Like Lightning

An annual temporary testing ground for innovative and radical architecture, London's Serpentine Pavilion was designed this year by Sou Fujimoto. The Japanese architect decided to erect a simple open gridded structure—a recurrent theme in his work—which the Financial Times architecture critic Edwin Heathcote called "a cloud out of sticks" in his rave review. Now a London artists collective, United Visual Artists, has brought that cloud to life through a system of LEDs that mimic flashes of lightning. See the mesmerizing results in the video below.
