Drawing on a rich history of radical playgrounds, artist Albert Potrony developed a kit of loose parts from a variety of construction materials. Children and families used these materials to connect, rearrange, construct and de-construct their own architectural spaces for playing and gathering in.

The education space became a DIY print studio where families used archive material to create play manifestos and design their dream playgrounds. Children and families produced and distributed multiple prints which generated discussion about play in the public realm. 

This event was programmed in parallel with the Serpentine Pavilion 2017 designed by Francis Kéré.

The Serpentine Galleries have signed up to the Family Arts Standards. We welcome families and to help you enjoy your experience we are committed to ensuring we meet these Standards. For more information on visiting the Serpentine Galleries with your family.
