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.
