Description

Find out more about the Serpentine's Build Your Own Pavilion national campaign to support young architects aged 8-16 to design public spaces for the cities of the future. Open to teachers and teaching assistants who are interested in art, design and architecture this TeachMeet will provide a practical framework for you to deliver Build Your Own Pavilion in your own classrooms, either as a one-off session or over several weeks.

Led by design-engineer educator Dejan Mitrovic, the session will cover researching your neighbourhood through collaborative mapping, architectural drawing and hands-on model making. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions about how to inspire your young architects and find out more about teaching next generation design technologies such as CAD and 3D printing.

The session will include light refreshments.

ABOUT BUILD YOUR OWN PAVILION

Build Your Own Pavilion is a nationwide campaign to celebrate architecture and encourage young architects everywhere to design public spaces for the cities of the future. Inspired by the Serpentine Pavilion, the Serpentine’s annual commission of temporary buildings by world-famous architects, Build Your Own Pavilion invites young people aged 8-16 to consider the relationship between architecture and public space and to design the architecture for the cities they would like to live in.

ABOUT THE SERPENTINE PAVILION

The Serpentine Pavilion 2017 is designed by award-winning architect Francis Kéré and is inspired by the tree that serves as a central meeting point for life in his home town of Gando in Burkino Faso. As an architect, he is committed to socially engaged and ecological design in his practice.
