The Serpentine Galleries together with Kidesign are challenging budding young architects everywhere to design the pavilions of the future. So if you are aged 8-14 years, like drawing and making stuff and have an interest in architecture and design, then come and show us what you can do!


This free mass make workshop introduces participants to the design process, including responding to a brief, sketching and hands-on model making. You will experience 3D CAD modelling and vote for the winning design which will be built using a 3D printer!

Enter the competition for a chance to win an iPad, along with many other fantastic prizes.

Sunday 4 September, from 1pm - 3pm


Suitable for 8 - 14 year olds.

Created by the Serpentine’s digital team together with educational design-engineering programmers Kidesign and supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Build Your Own Pavilion project celebrates and promotes architecture to young people everywhere, encouraging them to engage in the task of designing the pavilions of the future.
