Arnolfini - est 1961

Arnolfini are partnering with the Serpentine Galleries and Kidesign to challenge Bristol’s budding young architects to design the pavilions of the future.

Students from Hanham Woods Academy will be coming to Arnolfini to take part in a design workshop led by Kidesign, coming up with their dream designs for Serpentine’s summer pavilion.

But the challenge is open to many more. If you’re aged 8-14 and like drawing, making, architecture or design, the Build Your Own Pavilion Young Architects Challenge is the perfect opportunity to show us what you can do!

Make your 3D model with simple materials or create your digital design using free 3D CAD software and enter the competition on the Build Your Own Pavilion website.

Designs will be judged by a panel of experts, including the 2016 Pavilion architects Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG). Prizes include an iPad and architecture toolkits jam packed with books and creative materials, plus the chance for your work to be exhibited within the Serpentine Pavilion.
