When you visit London you may wonder what some of the city’s most iconic buildings are like inside.
The Heron Tower, the Gherkin and Tower 42 are just some of the buildings opening their doors as part of Open House London, a city-wide festival due to take place at the end of September. As part of the festival, over 750 buildings in the capital will be open to the public, alongside a fascinating free programme of engineering and landscape tours, walks, night-time openings and talks.
‘a unique opportunity to see, explore and learn about London’s amazing architecture and design.’
This will be the 20th Open House London event and organisers Open City are promising that the 2012 festival will be the best yet: ‘a unique opportunity to see, explore and learn about London’s amazing architecture and design.’
The theme of the 2012 festival will be the ‘changing face of London’ and the event will explore issues surrounding London’s communities such as the evolving environment including the way homes are designed, the effects of climate change and how the benefits of good design can make London a more enjoyable, ‘user-friendly’ place to live.
