Article 25 auction sells off architects artwork

  • Comment

Last week work by architects including David Adjaye, Ivan Harbour, Chris Wilkinson, Eva Jiricna, and Will Alsop was sold to raise money for humanitarian architecture charity Article 25

The art works raised more than £51,000 for the charity with the top selling piece – by artist Antony Gormley – fetching £7,000. In previous years the auction has raised more than £100,000 (AJ 08.12.15). 

The annual art event sees a 10 x 10 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 follows the curvature of the River Thames taking in the landmarks along its banks.

A varied collection of artworks were created with pieces ranging from pencil sketches and photographs to oil paintings and sculptures.

The top selling works

  • Anthony Gormley £7,000
  • Chris Wilkinson £2,100
  • Norman Ackroyd £2,000
  • Karl Singporewala £1,700
  • Paul Ruff & Federico Nassetti £1,600
  • Wolfgang Buttress £1,600
