The annual architecture event began in 1992 and allows people to explore buildings throughout the capital that they would otherwise be unable to view.

Tours of 22 Gordon Street will be led by the Hawkins/Brown design team. They will run between 11am and 3pm and will showcase the new exhibition spaces within the building as well as original features of Wates House that have been kept to bring together the new design and the Bartlett’s historical legacy.

The newly-designed building offers double the space of the original 1970s Wates House.

22 Gordon Street was opened in December last year by Her Royal Highness Princess Anne, Chancellor of the University of London.

The building has since won a New London Architecture award in the Education category and a RIBA London award, in addition to being shortlisted for the AJ100 and AJ Retrofit awards.

It was the first major building to open as part of the Transforming UCL programme, the largest capital programme in the university’s history which involves the investment of £1.2 billion to upgrade and expand UCL’s accommodation and facilities.
