Open House Worldwide Festival will take place this weekend November 14–15, 2020. You can join this world tour and visit more than 40 cities – from Buenos Aires, Lagos to Taipei, and others.
The festival will run as a non-stop 48-hour livestream, broadcast from the Open House Worldwide website. The program seeks to address the most important issues facing architecture and urbanism today.
The festival will be accessible for free and will be streamed in the original language with English subtitles.

This year, the whole Open House community has risen to the challenges of this year by organizing an online festival from all the participating cities, guaranteeing a completely unique spectacle,” said Phineas Harper, director of Open City, which manages the Open House Worldwide network.
