For this year’s Open House, in addition to opening our studios to the public, we are organising two masterplan tours at King’s Cross and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Led by designers at Allies and Morrison who have worked over many years – and continue to do so – on the evolution of both places, the tours offer an opportunity to learn about the urban design and spatial concepts that underpin these two changing pieces of London.
