The first OpenHouse was London in 1992, followed by New York in 2002 and Dublin in 2005. Since then, the OpenHouse family has grown to over 40 cities worldwide with over a million people participating. Whilst being totally independent of each other, all are committed to the same values started back in 1992, of raising awareness of the value of good design amongst local citizens. Limerick joined the OpenHouse Family in 2012, followed by Cork in 2014.
The challenges of 2020 led to the first ever Worldwide Open House event, a non-stop 48 hour livestream, broadcast from the Open House Worldwide website, with contributions from six continents and more than forty cities from the network and beyond. Plans for 2021 are currently being developed.
