We’re delighted to announce that 10×10 Drawing the City London, the flagship event for architectural charity Article 25, raised £90,000.
The event brought together world-renowned architects, artists and designers to create artwork of a chosen area of London. The images went under the hammer at the special live auction which took place at The Crossing, 1 Granary Square, London on Thursday 28th November.
The thrilling evening provided a chance to view and bid on a great variety of over 100 pieces of unique artwork with 25 selected pieces auctioned by a Sotheby’s auctioneer.
The magnificent pieces of artwork, which captured the extraordinary, the unnoticed and the ever-changing City of London, included images from some of the UK’s leading architects and artists, such as Dame Zaha Hadid, Lord Richard Rogers, Robert Fitzgerald, Sir Terry Farrell and Piers Gough. This year focussed on areas such as Hackney, Shoreditch and the Barbican.
All proceeds of the sale of the artwork will go to Article 25 building Street Children Centres, helping to get thousands of Africa’s most vulnerable children off the streets permanently and reconnecting them with their families or foster families.
The Think Tank is proud to be this year’s media partner for Article 25.
