Open City’s work is made possible thanks to the generous support of our Open City Friends, who share in our belief that engagement with and conversations about the future of London and the urban landscape should not be open just to a privileged few, but to everyone.

As London begins to re-open, this continued support is vital to the production of our ambitious programme of events, tours, films, podcasts, books, models and the Open House Festival, all of which have been developed with both in-person and online participation in mind.

If you value our work and believe in the cause of a more open, accessible and equitable city, then please stand by Open City and support us by becoming an Open City Friend. By donating just £1.25 a week, you can help produce engaging, propositional work about the future of London and help create a truly open city, protecting the future of Open House Festival, Accelerate programme and much more. To say thanks, we’ve made some great rewards for everyone who signs up, from limited edition prints to discounts on events.

Thank you.

With a little help from our friends...

Here’s what we’ve accomplished during the pandemic thanks to the support of people like you.

We’ve relaunched Accelerate, the only architecture course for teenagers from under-represented backgrounds.

We staged the Open House Worldwide Festival, bringing together people from 40 cities around the globe for a 48 hour online programme

We’ve made 33 films opening up buildings and landscapes across the city.

We made a series of 16 model kits of iconic London buildings to make at home.

We published the Alternative Guide to the London Boroughs – a print version of the Open House festival.

We’ve created over 70 free design-led activities for children and families to download online.
