With many buildings unable to open for this year's Open House weekend in London (September 19-20), Open City commissioned Stephenson / Bishop to create 30 short films that give viewers tours of some of the city's most unique places.

All of the films can be watched on the Open City website or in a playlist on Open City's YouTube channel. Given that the places span centuries, we've selected 9 of the 31 films in order to highlight contemporary architecture: all of the buildings were completed this century. The films are embedded below in order of their appearance in the YouTube playlist.
