OPEN 2019 is the annual showcase of the emerging talent and achievements of students from the University of Westminster’s MArch (RIBA Part 2) and BA Architecture (RIBA Part 1), BA Interior Architecture, BA Designing Cities, BSc Architecture & Environmental Design, and BSc Architectural Technology courses.

The event, hosted by the School of Architecture + Cities, celebrates the openness and diversity of the University of Westminster’s Design Studio system, and includes an extraordinary range of creative student work from first year to graduation, showcasing drawings, films, models and full-scale fabrications encompassing the handmade, the virtual, the big, the small. 

OPEN 2019 is partnering with the London Festival of Architecture, and this year’s theme ‘Boundaries’. The festival programme features exhibitions and events organised by London’s leading architectural, cultural and academic institutions alongside architects, designers, curators and community groups from around the UK. 

The show will be open from Friday 14 June to Sunday 30 June 10am–6pm weekdays and 10am-2pm weekends, and will take place in the acclaimed rooftop Marylebone studios, as well as the state-of-the-art Westminster Fabrication Laboratory

Professor Harry Charrington, Head of the School of Architecture + Cities at the University of Westminster, said about the upcoming event: “OPEN is a whirlwind of our students’ creativity and commitment, and an opportunity for the Department of Architecture to show off the imagination, care and craft of their projects.”

The event is free to attend.
