What is Open House Worldwide?
The Open House movement began in London in 1992, and has grown to include cities all over the world including Barcelona, New York, Rome, Helsinki, Dublin, Chicago and Melbourne.
Open House London was established with the aim of fostering a better understanding of architecture and the built environment. Founder Victoria Thornton set out to make London’s buildings accessible to all in the belief that direct experience is the most effective way to learn about, understand and argue for quality in the built environment.
