Due to exceptional circumstances caused by COVID-19 and the impossibility of holding our annual OPEN exhibition in our Marylebone Studios, we will conclude this academic year by launching VirtualOPEN. This will be the first online annual Exhibition celebrating the work of the School of Architecture + Cities. It has been envisaged as a navigable online show in which visitors will be able to view the work of all our design studios and year groups, as well as interact with each other.
VirtualOPEN will celebrate the amazingly innovative output that has been created this year under the most difficult of circumstances. It will promote the collective endeavour of our students, staff and support staff, and give us a positive and celebratory end to the academic year after all the gloom of recent months. VirtualOPEN will feature the energy and talent of more than 750 students, re-tuned to the possibilities of a virtual environment to produce something experimental, unexpected and exciting.
We look forward to welcoming you all to the opening at 6pm, Thursday, July 2!
