Open House London

If you happen to be in London September 20 & 21st of this year, do check out the Open House London event. It’s a rare opportunity for fans of historic architecture to get a look inside buildings that are privately owned. Here’s a bit of info from the website:

Open House London, the capital’s highest-profile architectural showcase, provides opportunities for people to explore more than 650 of London’s exemplary buildings and to meet the architects, design teams and building users on site. Celebrating design excellence in the capital, this unparalleled event takes place on the third weekend of September every year and is completely free of charge. It attracts worldwide interest and has inspired similar programmes in New York and Dublin.

This section tells you all you need to know about the event, the information you will need and how to get it, and also has a programme search facility live from mid-August and up to the event each year.

Wouldn’t it be great if Sacramento could launch something similar? I don’t know about you, but I could get pretty excited about wandering through some of these downtown Victorians turned law offices or the old Masonic building without feeling like I’m intruding. My last posting about the Governor’s Mansion open house was a step in the right direction!
