We are delighted to be a part of Open House London this year.
Open House celebrates London’s architectural wonders across the city, by giving free access museums, churches, public buildings and private houses that would usually be closed to the public. Over the course of the weekend, people can go on guided walks, tours and take part in activities, learning something new about some of London’s most beautifully built buildings.
Not only will the Workshop be opening it’s doors for Open House but so will SIDESHOW this year.
Architect Mathew Leung from the Turner Prize winning collective Assemble will be hosting a tour of the Workshop and its recent developments at 2pm. Click here to book. You’ll get to hear directly from Mathew about its initial stages to the development of the project and how the extension has responded to the ever-growing needs of the workshop and it’s facilities to it’s 800+ members.
Meanwhile, over at SIDESHOW ehk! architects who designed the ‘stage set’ that forms the backdrop of SIDESHOW, will be running a workshop making your very own paper cut diorama stage set of Walthamstow’s industrial past and bright future. In their design for SIDESHOW, they drew on the area’s industrial past and the skyline that this produced and are fascinated by how the buildings that form the backdrop to our lives can tell a story about the way we live through time. Tickets can be booked here.
The Workshop and SIDESHOW will be open to visitors from 10am to 4pm.
