10 x 10 Drawing The City, London
10×10 Drawing The City brings together 100 participants to create 100 pieces of work, giving 100 different perspectives within a snapshot of London. These works are then auctioned off at a special fundraising reception evening, which in 2015 was held at the RIBA’s headquarters in Portland Place, London. Previous events have been held at The Shard, Central Saint Martins King Cross and Somerset House.
Ed Freeman and Ian Wale from ReardonSmith Landscape have been contributing to the event for many years and their contribution to the event has raised thousands of pounds for the charity Article 25.
Article 25 is the United Kingdom’s leading architectural aid charity. It designs, manages and delivers sustainable building solutions in areas worldwide affected by disaster, poverty and need. Article 25 works closely together with local communities to design and construct sustainable buildings like schools, health clinics and training centres. Through engaging the local beneficiaries in community participation workshops, communities are able to take ownership of their project; in doing so Article 25 not only leaves behind excellent buildings, but also a society that has the ability to build for itself and create a positive future for generations to come.
