This year’s Open House Vilnius open architecture weekend will be held on April 27th and 28th. The event is part of the global movement “Open House Worldwide” that takes place in more than thirty cities.
In the course of one weekend buildings with a significant architectural design and important function in the city will be open to the public. Several tours of buildings will be offered by volunteers, the building’s architects, and residents. This is a great opportunity to learn about the cities architectual history.
Open House Vilnius has been organised since 2015. The event is held by the not for profit public institution Architektūros fondas.
„Open House Worldwide“ began in London in 1992, starting a global movement and fascination with architecture. Now the Open House weekends happens every year in moren than thirty cities around the world, from Barcelona to New York and Melbourne!
