Meet the experts

In recent years there has been a much greater impetus among architects and built environment professionals to get more involved with local communitities and to help them create inspiring places.

However, there are still few direct channels for professionals to offer their insights and expertise and to work long-term with wider audiences. The third 'arm' of Open-City's focus is its continuing in-depth partnerships with architects, engineers and many other built environment professionals.

Our programmes also allow architects and other professionals not only to showcase their work - Open House London in particular offers great exposure for new and recent projects - but also to develop their own skills in communicating and presenting their ideas and projects to a wider audience, including teachers and students, and to open up a direct dialogue with potential clients and stakeholders.
