I'm exhausted from catching up on three days' of blog posts... so Lord knows how you feel from all the walking and then all the writing.

The LSE building looks nice, though I wonder how efficient buildings like that are for people flow, when all these fancy things are in the way.
I work at the Royal College of Surgeons (although 99% from home these days) so I'll be interested to see what LSE do with our old building at number 35. Pre-Covid, we all decamped there while the main RCS building next door was reconstructed. I presume the sale of number 35 financed in some part the main building reconstruction.
I work very nearby and thought I might pop into the Inn (I've wandered through the site itself countless times) -- but it's not immediately clear to me from the website when they're open? Nothing appears on the map if I click "Today", but clicking "Anytime" just gives me the history and bus routes. Can you advise?

I'm pleased to say that the in situ helical stair isn't unique. For example, I had one on a recent domestic project in Sutton Coldfield. Yours is lovelier.
Thank you for the write up - that was a fascinating read - I just don't have the time/opportunity to do Open London these days so very much enjoy reading your write up of them.
I visited Lincoln's Inn on Saturday so missed you by a day!
I lived just round the corner from Pullman Court in the 1980s. I seem to remember the grounds being planted with a rather pleasing number of mature trees at that time.
I love reading your open house reports. Excellent as always. Thank you.
As an economist I wanted to believe that the LSE's Marshall Building was named for the early 20th century economist Alfred Marshall. How silly of me!
Space House, visible from the Marshall Building, was originally a 1960s spec office building, and more recently a temporary victim of the extraordinary Kingsway cable-duct fire that clobbered the electrics of numerous theatres and offices in Covent Garden. For years it housed numerous government departments, including the CAA for whom it was originally named, but the scaffolding is because, following a decant of the civil servants, it’s going to become much less useful “luxury” flats and a hotel.
