To celebrate the 15th birthday of the Serpentine Pavilion commission, the gallery has launched a new competition for young architects to design and build a pavilion
The Build Your Own Pavilion competition, is open to young people aged 8 to 14, from across the UK.
Competition entrants receive the pavilion brief and a toolkit that encourages sketching by hand, working with simple modelling materials and progressing to 3D design and print technologies. The pavilion designs can then be uploaded to an online gallery via the competition website.
Videos made for the competion feature 2013 pavilion architect Sou Fujimoto, and 2014 pavilion architect Smiljan Radić explaining the architectural process in designing a pavilion.
The designs will be judged by a panel of experts, including 2015 pavilion architect’s José Selgas and Lucía Cano, and Serpentine directors. A selection of the best designs will be showcased with the overall winners selected after the 18 October closing date.
