The Open House concept started in London in 1992 with the aim of opening the field of architecture outside of the profession. The main idea is to experience the buildings and to be able to discuss with architects, experts but also citizens. There are more than 30 cities around the globe that organize an Open House weekend, such as Chicago, Atlanta or New York in the US. But also Helsinki, Barcelona or Buenos Aires.
This year, in the second weekend of October, MN had the pleasure to participate in OHNY, showing one of their projects, Crye Precision in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. It’s a great opportunity to visit sites throughout the 5 boroughs that are usually closed to the public but also to debate with others about the city and its architecture. Check out the OHNY website or any other location to visit next time!
