OPEN HOUSE IN A FEW WORDS
Open House is one of the most important global institutions for the promotion of architecture. The idea began at London in 1992 and until today, it has spread to many cities around the globe. The Open House project invites the public to explore and understand the value of architecture.
Every year for one weekend, private and public buildings open their gates to everyone for free and the city is transformed to a big museum, with its buildings and architecture being the exhibits.
OPEN HOUSE THESSALONIKI
Open House started in Thessaloniki in 2012 and has since been organized 8 times, with great response from the public. In OPEN HOUSE Thessaloniki 2019, 600 volunteers guided the tours in 100 places, marking the record number of 54000 visits!
The 10th OPEN HOUSE Thessaloniki consists of two parts: the live and the online event. Specifically, in October 23-24 a series of city routes will take place, while in late November a series of virtual tours will premiere on YouTube. Both parts will be accompanied by contests.
