What are the buildings we want and need? Where are the spaces for health, living, education and play in the city?


OOMK will create a temporary interactive printing press, inviting families to identify the urban challenges we face and use collage and drawing to design new buildings to improve our city.

Using the risograph printer, children and their families can produce multiple prints of their designs, add to a collective cityscape and distribute proposals to friends and family. 
The event is free, drop-in and suitable for families with children of all ages.

This workshop is programmed in parallel with the 2019 Serpentine Pavilion designed by Junya Ishigami.

OOMK are the 2019 Serpentine Family Artists-in-Residence. Over the course of the year, OOMK will develop _____ in Common, a series of workshops bringing together children and adults to explore the idea of the commons – the cultural and natural resources that can be used by all members of society. Through their residency they aim to support and sustain a renewed responsibility for each other and the natural world.

The Serpentine Galleries have signed up to the Family Arts Standards. We welcome families and to help you enjoy your experience we are committed to ensuring we meet these Standards. For more information on visiting the Serpentine Galleries with your family.
