Open House London 2015, the annual architecture and design event in the British capital, lasts only a single weekend, but London and the surrounding area offer plenty of examples of contemporary architecture worth visiting and discovering at any time of the year. Here is an overview of some of the most interesting projects presented in Floornature.

The architecture of London Best of the Week

An overview of the most recent projects built in London and presented in the pages of Floornature. The temporary pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery is well worth seeing before it is taken down on October 18, according to a time-honoured tradition. The 2015 pavilion was designed by Spanish architects José Selgas and Lucía Cano of Selgascano.
Going on to buildings that have had a profound impact on the London skyline, we recall The Shard London Bridge, Europe’s tallest skyscraper, designed by Renzo Piano, The Gherkin, the skyscraper designed by Foster & Partners in 2003 and Tower 42, designed by Richard Seifert, the silhouette of which appears in the logo of Open House London, the annual architecture and design event in the British capital.

The Aquatic Centre designed by Zaha Hadid Architects for the 2012 Olympics is definitely one of the city's best-known new buildings. And four of the six projects shortlisted for the 2015 Riba Stirling Prize are in London:
Burntwood School by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Darbishire Place by Niall McLaughlin Architects, Neo Bankside by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and University of Greenwich Stockwell Street Building by Heneghan Peng Architects.
