Open House London Book
Open House London: An exclusive insight into 100 Architecturally Inspiring Buildings in London.
This is the first hardback illustrated book on the Open House London Annual Event, celebrating its 20th anniversary. Published by Ebury Press, this beautifully presented volume provides exclusive insights into 100 of the most architecturally inspiring buildings that have featured in the event over its 20-year history.
Authored by Open-City’s Founder, Victoria Thornton OBE HonFRIBA, and with a foreword by Alain de Botton, the book provides an overview of the ideas behind these buildings’ design, construction and use, and why they represent architectural excellence. Well-known buildings sit alongside the less famous, but no less architecturally intriguing – Lloyd’s of London and the Imagination building, Trellick Tower and Ed’s Shed, the Royal Festival Hall and Wilton’s Music Hall, among many others.
