Welcome to the Open House London review – a report on this year’s edition of the world’s biggest architecture festival
For the second year in a row and for only the second time in our history, Open House London 2018 was truly London-wide, with every borough listed in the September weekend programme. And once again Open House celebrated the old, the new, the odd and the typical, and much else in-between, to create a snapshot of the city and its always-morphing urban design.
Open House really is unique – we make it happen each year with you: our sponsors, friends, volunteers and everyone who visited any number of the 800 plus buildings walks and tours this year.
Thank you! Rory Olcayto, Director, Open City

London Open House is an outstanding weekend and the participating venues so welcoming - both OH volunteers and their staff. Wouldn't miss it.
Open House is one of the most positive ways in which the general public can engage with good design; and where they can experience first hand, extraordinary buildings and see the breadth of possibilities afforded by working with imaginative and creative designers.
I enjoy Open House so much and have visited 123 buildings in the 18 years since I've been making Open House visits. Thank you !
Peckham High Street had a real vibrancy about it even in the pouring rain. Our visits to the power station and recycling plant were an interesting eye-opener for us adults and children alike and will cause us to take these issues more seriously.
