Theme route: artistic spaces and ateliers
This year’s program features a number of buildings or spaces that are currently being transformed into places for art and culture or whose past is connected to art, and we have decided to introduce them to you in more detail.
What accompanying programs are there on the weekend?
In addition to the tours in the buildings, there are many more events and activities on the weekend of the festival! Our partners have prepared special guided tours with architects, exhibitions, presentations, lectures, and other surprises. The program is continually updated.

We are part of the international network
The concept of Open House was born in London in 1992 and founded by Victoria Thornton, who holds the Order of the British Empire for her services to architecture. Thanks to the festival’s success, it has expanded to 50 cities over the world. The festival was originally a community project which was supposed to strengthen the dialogue between the public and architects, the city, and its public spaces. Open House Prague is a proud member of the Open House Worldwide network, which was officially founded in 2010 and is administered by Open City, a charity registered in the UK.
