Starchitect-designed buildings to open for Maggie’s Culture Crawl
Buildings by Norman Foster, Richard Rogers and Zaha Hadid are all set to open their doors as part of Maggie’s annual Culture Crawl
Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners’ Stirling Prize-winning West London Maggie’s centre, the Hadid-designed Serpentine Sackler Gallery, and Foster + Partners’ office will all welcome visitors on Maggie’s sponsored night-time walk.
The content for the 15 mile-long route around the capital will be curated by Richard Rogers’ son Ab Rogers.
Ab Roger’s commented: ‘This year’s Maggie’s Culture Crawl will be like no other. There will be a series of fully interactive interventions and micro activities involving food, performance, light and sound as well as extraordinary buildings to see and a beautiful route to walk. Walkers will be part of a vibrant, multi-coloured carnival on a cultural journey full of excitement and surprise.’
Held in aid of the cancer care charity, the walk is happening as part of Open House London on 19 September.
Last year the walk raised more than £460,000 for the charity.
