Architecture Week provides an important opportunity for people of all ages to enjoy, explore and raise their expectations of contemporary architecture; and to find ways to improve the built environment.

Wherever you live in the East of England, and whatever aspect of architecture and the built environment you're most interested in, we hope the events, exhibitions, talks, walks and workshops in this guide will give you a chance to celebrate the beautiful, ingenious, quirky, dramatic, intimate and historic buildings in the region.

Highlight events
