At Open House Learning, we build on and enhance the work carried
out by our sister project, the annual opening of more than 600 buildings.
Open House Learning offers a wide and constantly evolving programme
of events which open up the world of the built environment to its
audiences (not only children and the young, but their teachers,
their carers and architects too). Events and activities range in
scope from Junior Open House involving more than 4000 schoolchildren
to Architectives, which can be enjoyed by a family of four.
Open House Learning’s approach is unique: its starting point
is always direct experience. It takes education out of the classroom,
off the library shelves, and into some of the finest examples of
architecture the capital has to offer. We have found that this brings
buildings alive for young people, stimulates discussion and leads
anyone who participates to feel a sense of ownership of their own
On this part of the website you will find details of some of the
things we have done already and some of the things we intend to
do in the future. But as our approach is responsive as well as creative,
events will continue to evolve as directed by the participants themselves.
Welcome to your Open House Learning.
