Bushe creates 'living monument' on Fourth Plinth

  • Comment

Architect Tim Bushe created a ‘living monument’ on behalf of Hft, national charity for people with learning disabilities and their families, during his hour on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square last Thursday

Described by followers on Twitter as Awesome with a capital “A”, fascinating, fantastic, brilliant, creative, excellent and great, the North London architect has raised over £1,700 in sponsorship for his hour on the plinth in support of the charity’s work across the UK for people with learning disabilities.

Bushe designed an acetate tube featuring the newly designed Hft logo which was recently relaunched by the charity. The tube was raised onto the plinth pedestal by a basket crane and from within the tube he proceeded to make a 360° drawing of Trafalgar Square which is being auctioned on eBay.

The finished drawing will be on eBay from 24 July and can be found here or by clicking on eBay, followed by ‘eBay for charity’ and then Hft under ‘find a charity’. All monies raised from the auction will go towards Hft.

Bushe chose to dedicate his hour on the plinth to Hft and to raise money for the charity because of the support it has given to his youngest sister, Martha, and to hundreds of other people with learning disabilities and their families throughout the country.
