Open House Tallinn 2022 surprised with highest attendance yet
The architectural event Open House Tallinn that took place last weekend, opened the doors and behind-the-scenes of 28 places in different areas of the Estonian capital for the fourth time. Over the course of two days, nearly 6300 people visited the tours, which marks the most successful open-door weekend since 2019, when the first Open House Tallinn took place.
Most visited place out of the 28 different object was Noblessner Submarine Factory and Stalker Museum Bunker with 799 visits, which was followed by Patarei Sea Fortress with 686 people and Krull’s quarter with 455 visits. Also popular was Saarinen’s Building, Luther’s Machine Room, Baltic Manufactory, Büroo 113, Hundipea district / Paljassaare harbour and Lurich Building.
According to the producer of Open House Tallinn, Aleksander Tali, the sort of success shows that Open House Tallinn cannot be seen as an ordinary event anymore, but a full-fledged festival. “Relying on the strong collaboration between the Open House team, our volunteers and partners and the object managers, we exceeded our goals and offered experiences for every taste,” added Tali. “It makes me very happy that the interest in the event was apparent and that the architecture weekend brings and creates value for both people and urban space.”
Open House started in London in 1992 and today the event is organised in more than 40 cities around the world. Open House Tallinn is organized by Estonian Centre for Architecture and our partners include the Cultural Endowment of Estonia, the City of Tallinn, Estonian Ministry of Culture, British Council, Ruukki and Velux.
