George Clarke, TV presenter, architect, builder and campaigner, will open the University of Westminster's architecture and interiors students' end-of-year exhibition OPEN 2015 on Thursday 11 June, as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2015.

The annual celebration showcases the emerging talent of the University of Westminster students studying on the Architecture BA Honours, Interior Architecture BA Honours and Master of Architecture (MArch) RIBA Part 2 courses.

The exhibition will be open to the public from Friday 12 June until Sunday 14 June, and will include students' dissertations and works from their first year to graduation, ranging from architecture drawings and computer-generated models to interior design visions and projects.

Attendees will get a unique chance to witness the acclaimed end-of-year show in the studios of the University's Marylebone Campus, where the newly opened state-of-the-art digital fabrication laboratory and the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment are located.

Harry Charrington, Head of Department of Architecture at the University of Westminster, said: "This is an exciting time for the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment. In April, we opened the Fabrication Laboratory Westminster, and this summer the studios are being refurbished and extended to give us even better facilities for our students. All this investment stems from the remarkable work of our students and staff, the results of which you can see at OPEN 2015."
