This year’s Open House will include nearly 50 landscape projects, many of which are changing the face of London and providing social, environmental and economic benefits for the capital
The Landscape Institute has teamed up with Open House to create a London landscape map in good time for the Open House event in September.
Included in the map are green improvement projects in locations such as Lewisham and the London 2012 Olympic Park. Other listed projects include Northala Fields, Alexandra Palace, the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich and Dalston’s Eastern Curve. More project details can be found at the open house website.
The map, which can be downloaded here, is separated into the different areas of London and a letter code defines specific landscape projects.
The annual Open House event provides a unique opportunity to see London’s great architecture, with over 700 buildings opening their doors to the public for free. This year’s event takes place on 17 and 18 September. and will attract approximately 600,000 people. A full guide can be found on the Open House website.
Paul Lincoln, director of policy and communications at the Landscape Institute, said: “I am delighted to say that this year there will be an excellent set of guided tours and 50 projects with landscape content, all of which are specially highlighted in the guide.”
For those who don’t live in London, it’s a ideal excuse to visit the city, so why not download the landscape map and start planning your trip.
