Open House London Festival 2021
4 – 12 September 2021
Local London will explore community buildings, libraries, local arts, pubs and community public realm, giving Londoners an opportunity to show their pride in the areas and institutions that have influenced their communities
Global London will explore global architects, global arts and culture as well as globally influencing urban design, allowing an opportunity to put London into the wider cultural landscape of global cities and design
Architecture and Wellbeing will promote mental health and wellbeing with visits to mindful architecture and quiet tours exploring off the beaten track and undiscovered areas. We will be taking advantage of experimental event formats to engage with the city in new ways
We’ll also be exploring ideas around the intersection of architecture and food as well as architecture and education to celebrate the reopening of the hospitality industry and the importance of London’s educational sites that have been missed during the pandemic.
