Slideshow feature: following the news that Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto is designing this year's Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, here's a look at some of his best-known projects, including the Final Wooden House made from chunky timber beams and the Tokyo Apartment that comprises four house-shaped apartments stacked on top of each other.

House O is one of the architect's oldest projects and was designed as a weekend retreat in Chiba. House N was completed more recently and is a residence with three layers of walls and ceilings.

The architect's largest projects include the Children's Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation, a treatment center for mentally disturbed children, and the Musashino Art University Library with walls made of timber shelves.

Sou Fujimoto also recently completed House NA, a residence with hardly any walls, and was part of the team that won a Golden Lion at the Venice Architecture Biennale for designing housing for those made homeless by the 2011 disaster. See more architecture by Sou Fujimoto.

    This is the first I’ve read about House O being destroyed. A tragedy upon a tragedy.

    House O is not destroyed, wrong information @dezeen. Not sure where that came from.

    Yes I’m not sure the O house was destroyed. In fact I’m almost certain it wasn’t.

    Apologies for writing that House O had been destroyed when in fact this is not the case. The architects have now confirmed that the house is still intact.
