Have you ever wondered what lies beyond Macau’s historical walls? Uncover the untold architectural history of Macau! During 10-11 November, throughout a weekend, Macau hosts the first and only Open House initiative to be held in Asia. Open House Macau (OHM) will get you beyond the walls of 50 insightful buildings and offer free visits, showcasing untold architecture for all to experience. Dozens of opportunities to talk, think about and celebrate the city! Free for all and curated and organized by CURB – Center for Architecture and Urbanism, OHM is a proud member of renowned Open House Worldwide, which includes over 40 cities in four continents.
The idea is to take participants to iconic buildings in the city. Picks are carefully selected, according to their unique contribution to the city’s culture and fabric. Each site has a special significance: be it architectural design, historic or cultural value, repurposing of space, or unique use of public areas. OHM 2018 idiosyncratic buildings’ listing includes examples of traditional Chinese architecture, neoclassic, art deco, modernist, and contemporary designs. There’s something for everyone: schools, housing complexes, markets, theatres, libraries, piers, museums, government buildings, skyscrapers, hotels, sacred spaces, you name it!
