Open-City seeks architects to promote green innovation

  • Comment

Architects have been invited to throw open their studio doors to the profession as part of Open-City’s Green Sky Thinking event which will run immediately after the annual Open House festival in London

The event immediately follows this year’s Open House festival which runs on 17 and 18 September and allows the public to see inside some of the capital’s greatest architectural gems.

Running from 19 to 22 September, the event offers a ‘rare chance’ for architects to debate green ideas first-hand – according to the organisers.

An Open-City spokesperson said: ‘Through informal events hosted in their own offices in the week after, architects, landscape architects, engineers, and other design and construction professionals will be able to demonstrate their expertise in sustainability to a design-conscious audience, including potential clients.’

‘It’s an opportunity for practices to showcase  innovative projects in the pipeline and exchange ideas with fellow professionals facing similar challenges in low carbon design,’ explained AJ sustainability editor Hattie Hartman.

‘It’s an opportunity to question the people who have done the projects and find out the thinking behind their work.’

Backed by the AJ, Green Sky Thinking will feature a series of seminars, round-table conversations and design presentations.

In 2008, Open-City’s precursor programme – Green Sky Studios – featured a number of practices including Architype, Burd Haward, bere architects, Duggan Morris Architects, ECD Architects, Studio E Architects and Wilkinson Eyre Architects.

Open-City is seeking 100 practices to take part in the project and open their doors to the profession. London-based practices who would like to register to take part should contact Sarah Yates on 020 7380 0412 or syates@open-city.org.uk by Monday 1 August.
