This year, The Think Tank is the media partner for Article 25’s flagship event,10×10 Drawing the City London. Organised by architectural and construction aid charity Article 25, 10×10 Drawing the City London brings together world-renowned architects, artists and designers to create artwork of a chosen area of London.
Participants of this year’s 10×10 Drawing the City London were on hand at a preview event held at Paul Davis + Partners‘ offices on 30th October to discuss the inspiration behind their work. Charity Founder Maxwell Hutchinson, broadcaster, architect and former past president of the Royal Institute of British Architects, was on hand at the preview to quiz the participants in an informal ‘show & tell’. Rydal Hanbury, Giles Carlton, Christian Spencer Davies as well as well as Peter Heath, Morley von Sternberg, Simon Haddock, Simon Gazzard, Dominic Chung and Soham De provided a further insight into the inspiration behind their work.
It was fascinating to hear the personal stories linked to each of the artworks, and to see the different interpretations of this vibrant and multicultural part of London – the auction looks set to be a thrilling evening!
The artwork created is due to go on display to the public from 21st to 28th November at the Crossing, 1 Granary Square, London, N1C 4AA. Visitors will then have the opportunity to bid for selected pieces by attending a special charity live auction event on the 28 November. Preliminary bids can also be made here.

The 10×10 charity auction helps to raise funds for Article 25. All proceeds of the sale of the artwork will go to Article 25 building Street Children Centres.
