One of the most creative and influential architects today, Sou Fujimoto (born 1971) is a Japanese architect. Born in Hokkaido in 1971, he graduated from the University of Tokyo in 1994, and established his own office, Sou Fujimoto Architects, in 2000. He is noted for delicate light structures and permeable enclosures. Renowned for his highly conceptual contributions to the world of architecture, Sou Fujimoto has developed a signature style that combines visually arresting geometric forms with the restraint of a true minimalist.
In addition to his architectural feats, Fujimoto uses his keen sense of geometry for large-scale art installations like The Cloud in Tirana in Albania and London’s Serpentine Gallery, Inside/Outside Tree at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and Forest of Light, an interactive exhibit at Salone del Mobile.
