More than 150 architects 'on site' for Open House London 2014

  • Comment

Architects from more than 150 practices will be showing the public around their buildings as part of this year’s Open House London (OHL) programme

Among the star names ‘on site’ this weekend (20-21 September) will be William Mann of Stirling Prize-winning practice Witherford Watson Mann, Alexandra Road estate architect Neave Brown, Maria Smith of Studio Weave, Cezary Bednarski, Michel Mossessian and Sarah Featherstone.

The annual event provides free public access to more than 800 of the city’s finest buildings as well as neighbourhood walks, cycle tours, architects’ talks and debates.

This year’s headliners include Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners’ Leadenhall Building - aka ‘The Cheesegrater’ - Allies and Morrison’s Rambert Dance Academy and O’Donnell + Tuomey’s Stirling-nominated Saw Swee Hock student centre.

As in previous years, the majority of buildings operate on a ‘turn up on the day’ policy, although small number are pre-book together with ballots only for 10 Downing Street and the Antony Gormley Room at The Beaumont.  

Around 80 of the buildings opening their doors to the public this year feature in the AJ Buildings Library and, through our partnership with Open House, these will be available for non-subscribers to access during the month of September.

The overall theme for Open House 2014 London is ‘Revealing’, with the two day event aiming to shed light on the latest contemporary architecture shaping London. Other themes explored during this year’s events include tall buildings, women in architecture and sustainability.

  • London School of Economics: Saw Swee Hock Student Centre, O’Donnell + Tuomey, 2014.
  • JW3-Jewish Community Centre London, Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, 2013
  • Royal Road, Panter Hudspith Architects, 2013
