In 1976 Vriesendorp returned to London to work on numerous OMA competitions and, together with Teri When-Damisch, an animated film for French television. From the mid 1980s she taught art and design at a number of schools, including the Architectural Association and the Edinburgh School of Art. Over the last ten years she has worked in collaboration with Charles Jencks, producing drawings and models to accompany many of his publications, and with her daughter Charlie on several books and art projects. Most recently, Vriesendorp has produced illustrations for Built, Domus and Abitare, while working on costumes, built objects, paintings and short stories.
