Drawing the city: Architects' charity art works
A private viewing of the 10x10 Drawing the City: London exhibition was held at Somerset House yesterday
The programme has seen 100 architects and artists including Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster and Jake and Dinos Chapman allocated unique spots from a 100-square grid of the West End, with each artist contributing an artwork based on their location.
The artworks will be auctioned on Wednesday 14 November, with proceeds going towards Article 25’s water and sanitation projects for schools in Haiti, part of the on-going disaster relief work in the country.
10x10 was initiated last year, when 100 architects were allocated locations in the City of London, when almost all artworks outsold their guide prices, with proceeds going towards rebuilding a school in Bukina Fasu.
The pieces will be exhibited for free at Somerset House, until the auction next Wednesday. For more details, and to bid online, visit: www.10x10london.com
