Toyo Itorecipient of the Pritzker Prize 2013, along with Cecil Balmond and Arup were in charge of the design of the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion back in 2002. What appeared to be an extremely complex random pattern was in fact derived from an algorithm of a cube that expanded as it rotated. The intersecting lines formed different triangles and trapezoids, whose transparency and translucency gave a sense of infinitely repeated motion. 

You can see more images of the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2002 after the break. And don't forget to check ArchDaily's exclusive coverage of the 2013 Pritzker Prize.
