Bidding opens on 10x10 charity auctions

  • Comment

Online bidding has begun for the Article 25 charity auction with works by Ivan Harbour, Will Alsop and Eva Jiřičná being sold off for the charity

More than 100 artworks will be sold off on the 27 November as part of an annual event to raise funds for the humanitarian architecture charity.

Bidding began online last week and already some works have had a flurry of interest. A set of watercolours by RIBA Gold Medallist Sheila O’Donnell currently has bids of £700 while a 1:1000 scale model of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners’ Cheesegrater has already hit its guide price of £1,000.

Other artworks up for grabs include a piece by Turner Prize-winner Antony Gormley with a starting price of £6,000, and sketches by architects Chris Wilkinson, Rab Bennetts, Ted Cullinan and Sunand Prasad.

Norman Foster drew his own Millennium Bridge for the auction - but the pencil sketch is yet to rack up any bids online.

Architects, photographers and artist were enlisted earlier this year to each interpret an area of the City of London, which had been divided into a 10x10 grid.

Now in its fourth year, the event has previously focused on London’s West End, the City of London and the East End, and this year takes the Stirling Prize-nominated Shard as its centre point.

Last year the event raised £90,000 to design and build centres for street children in countries across Africa, and this year, Article 25 aims to raise money to support healthcare projects in the developing world.
