A month-long celebration of innovative and exciting architecture is taking place across London this June.

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has thrown open the doors to more than 50 of its chartered London practices to host interesting architectural debates, exhibitions and workshops as part of the London Festival of Architecture.

From drinking architects’ tasty home-brewed craft beer with the architects themselves to watching a 3D printing machine in action, there are plenty of lively events on offer during the London Open Studios month – including the chance to gain rare behind-the-scenes access to some of the most innovative design projects in the capital.

On Thursday, June 11, the Belsize Village Architects Hub, close to Hampstead Town, will welcome in visitors to three of its chartered architects. Industry professionals from Square Feet Architects, Sanya Polescuk Architects and XUL Architecture will create a unique piece of work in Belsize Village Square with help from any youngsters who would like to take part.

And there will be professional advice for your home on offer too, with the architects giving free half-hour design surgeries to help you drum up some inspiration for your space.

Further afield, explore the hidden stories of London’s homeless population with a large-scale art installation in at Levitt Bernstein’s Dalston studios next weekend.

Or, if history is your thing, visit Fitzrovia and consider whether the bohemian culture of Virginia Woolf’s home postcode can be recaptured with an exhibition at the Fielden Clegg Bradley Studios in west London.

London Open Studios, until June 30, various venues across London. For the full programme of events visit: architecture.com
