The 6th Annual Architectural Open Studios 2018 will be holding in Cape Town

As reported by Africanism, Open Studios returns to Cape Town once again, with architecture practices across the city opening their doors to the public on 3 and 4 December 2018.

Now in its sixth year, this event invites people inside the innovative architectural studios responsible for the buildings shaping the city, giving visitors the opportunity to meet the architects behind the projects and to see the diverse creative spaces in which design takes place.

One of the most popular events on the design calendar, this year’s event will focus on two main hubs: CBD and East City. The participating studios will open after hours and guests will be able to chat to architects about their work and process of design.

Each studio will offer their own curated display of work, including current and future projects, presentations, architectural models and animations. Studios that are walking distance are grouped together, meaning visitors can visit several locations in one night.

Popular with professionals, students and general public alike, this unique event is not to be missed. The full programme is available on
