This year, OPEN 2020 went virtual as an exhibition of projects that showcase the array of design approaches of students from the School of Architecture + Cities. Over 700 students and colleagues from the School took part in constructing the immersive experience, assembling all exhibits into a single digital space.
The opening night of the virtual exhibition began with a keynote speech from Professor Sadie Morgan OBE who introduced the preview of the show with an inspiring address to students, colleagues and attendees about the world of architecture and design. Visitors were then invited to enter the online exhibition space which is separated into a West Hall, Central Hall and East Hall. OPEN 2020 will be available for viewing until 30 September.

The online event celebrates the work and diversity of Westminster’s Architecture and Interiors courses and includes an extensive range of student work from first year to graduation. It presents the work of more than 750 students who explored Architecture at all scales and mediums, from models and films to digital drawings and virtual prototypes. 

Courses that are displaying their work in the exhibition include Architecture BA Honours, Architecture and Environmental Design BSc Honours, Designing Cities: Planning and Architecture BA, Interior Architecture BA Honours, Architectural Technology BSc Honours, Master of Architecture (MArch) (RIBA Pt II), Architecture MA, Architecture and Environmental Design MSc and Interior Architecture MA
