Hidden Infrastructure

Celebrating the buildings occupied by London’s key workers

Whilst many of us felt like the city stopped during lockdown, in reality key workers were keeping the city going by providing our essential services. As well as the doctors and nurses, it was the bin men, bus drivers, warehouse workers, cleaners and shopkeepers, that were all on the front line. This year, Open House hopes to celebrate the individuals and the architecture of the hidden infrastructure of our city — highlighting the hospitals, bus depots, warehouses, distribution centres, control rooms and corner shops that kept London going.
