Charity Article 25 unveils leading architects' work for auction

  • Comment

Work by top architects including Charles Holland, Eva Jiricna, Zaha Hadid Architects and Will Alsop has been revealed for auction in aid of humanitarian architecture charity Article 25

Other architects, designers and artists taking part in the event include Antony Gormley, Richard Meier, Rafael Viñoly, Wolfgang Buttress, Peter Murray, Sam Jacob, Jock McFadyen, Purcell,Tom Hunter and Antoni Malinowski. 

The annual event sees a 10 x10 grid laid over an area of London, with each participant allocated one of the 100 squares within it. The architect or designer then donates an artwork inspired by the buildings and public space within their square. 

This year the grid will be set out in Brixton, south London, and will focus on the area’s cultural diversity. 

Billed as the charity’s ‘main fundraising event’, the auction will be held at the RIBA’s 66 Portland Place headquarters on 29 November and all funds raised will go towards Article 25’s projects.

Sunand Prasad, Article 25′s chair of trustees, said: ’Every pound raised by 10x10 is multiplied by Article 25 and its in-country partners to provide a far more valuable improvement in life chances in some of the most vulnerable communities around the world.

’I am confident that with a growing number of supporters we can make 10x10 2016 the best yet.’
