Open house at Great George Street

THE ICE headquarters have, for the first time, been included in the prestigious Open House scheme to celebrate London's architecture.

On 20 September, the ICE will open its doors and allow the public to roam the marble hallways and oak lined meeting rooms of a building viewed as a great asset of the Institution.

The open day is also a chance for ICE members unfamiliar with the Portland stone HQ, to join in the fun.

Press officer Peter Griffiths said: 'It's a chance for all members who haven't seen our fantastic headquarters to come along with their families on the day and get a free guided tour.'

Fellow debutantes in this year's event include the Lloyd's of London building, the Government's Lancaster House - used for Heads of Government meetings - and St Pancras Station Hotel. 'We are in good company,' said Griffiths.

In The Guardian's com- panion to Open House, the entry on the Institution reads flatteringly: 'Headquarters of the world's premier eng ineering institution. A fine example of Edwardian architecture, Listed Grade II*, James Miller, 1913'.
