The Build Your Own Pavilion project invited children aged 8-16 across the UK to become young architects and submit their designs for new public spaces in their city or town. 

We’re offering free resources to support teachers in planning Build Your Own Pavilion workshops in their own classrooms, including a pack with activity and lesson plan ideas, information on past Serpentine Pavilions and CAD tutorial videos – everything needed to inspire students and help them design fantastic Pavilions.


Dear teachers, educators, architects or anyone else interested in running an exciting, inspirational design activity for children! We have developed a special section of our website, just for you…
