Partnering with Serpentine Galleries and Kidesign, Hauser & Wirth Somerset is delighted to host a Mass Make Workshop for children aged 8 – 14 years old. Participants will have the opportunity to design their own pavilion, drawing inspiration from the Radić Pavilion at the end of Oudolf Field. The workshop will focus on the analogue design process including responding to a brief, sketching and hands-on model making. This free three-hour Mass Make introduces participants to the design process, including responding to a brief, sketching and hands-on model making. We encourage you to enter your model into the Mass Make competition for a chance to win an iPad, along with many other fantastic prizes.

The Radić Pavilion was installed at Hauser & Wirth Somerset in March 2015. Designed by Chilean architect Smiljan Radić, this unique structure was first unveiled as the Serpentine Gallery 2014 Pavilion. On the anniversary of the 15th Pavilion commission in 2015, the Serpentine partnered with Kidesign to launch a nationwide campaign: Build Your Own Pavilion, a young architects challenge for children, inviting them to design their own Pavilions. The project, supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies, celebrates and promotes architecture to young people everywhere, encouraging them to engage in the task of designing the pavilions of the future. Last year’s competition and workshops created over 600 children’s pavilions, some of which will be showcased in this year’s Serpentine Pavilion, designed by BIG. The workshop is free, however booking is essential. To book a place please contact the Front Desk team: email or call + +44 1749 814 060 Available for children aged 8 – 14 years old.
