The ground floor exhibition space, located just off Tottenham Court Road, was filled with supporters of Article 25 last week at the exhibition’s opening, including past president of the Royal Institute of British Architects and trustee of Article 25, Maxwell Hutchinson.
Robin Cross, Acting CEO of Article 25, gave an eye-opening presentation on the work that the charity are involved with, highlighting stories featured within the exhibition. The exhibition aims to promote awareness of Article 25 among the construction and design industry, as well as, generate public awareness of the work that the charity does across the developing world in countries like Haiti, Uganda and Afghanistan.
The A100 practice, who are nominated for this years AJ100 Sustainable Practice of the Year Award, aims to raise funds from a number of initiatives being held across their three UK offices to contribute towards the design costs for a School Building Programme in Burkina Faso, West Africa.
The Burkina Faso programme will create the first new school in the town of Gourcy, providing a learning environment for 1100 children. Article 25 hope that this will facilitate the growth and development of sustainable and self-sufficient communities in Burkina Faso, strengthening livelihoods and reducing poverty.
Darren Comber, Chief Executive at Scott Brownrigg said: ‘Scott Brownrigg is committed to supporting future generations, not only those within the architecturalindustry but also in wider communities. The crucial work being carried out by Article 25 provides us with the opportunity to really make a difference for the futureof those within some of the poorest countries on our planet.
