Some 60-plus drawings will go under the hammer in an online auction being conducted next month to help raise money for the Architectural Association (the only architecture school in the country that receives no state funding). UK donors include Will Alsop, Edward Cullinan, Rem Koolhaas, Piers Gough, Zaha Hadid and Lord Rogers. International contributions have come from (among others) Tadao Ando, Toyo I to , Michael Graves and Richard Meier. Frank Gehry is sending a chair (signed). Bids will be entertained from 22 May, when the website will be up and running. The splendidly nonvirtual Piers Gough will be compere on the evening of 5 June.
