Most popular Open House ever

  • Comment

This year’s Open House London was the most popular ever, with numbers up 35 per cent on last year

Buildings by Foster and Rogers attracted the biggest crowds.

About 7,500 visited Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners’ newly-completed Leadenhall Building, while some 7,000 took a look around Foster + Partners’ 2004 Stirling Prize-winning Gherkin.

The most popular building was the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, with about 15,000 visitors over the weekend.

But buildings outside central London didn’t pull quite such large crowds. Just two people joined a Saturday afternoon tour of David Adjaye’s Stephen Lawrence Centre in Deptford.
