Studiomama's contribution to "10x10 Drawing the City", Article 25's annual fundraising auction.
Article 25 works with vulnerable communities recovering from disasters around the world by helping construct more resilient schools, clinics and other buildings. These buildings are also architecturally distinguished as in the case of the Gourcey school in Burkina Faso which featured in last year's World Architecture Festival. In its tenth year, Article 25 is in an exciting stage of development aimed at making an impact on people's lives at a larger scale, building on the individual prototypes we have been developing.
10x10 is based on drawing a grid of an hundred squares on a part of London for a hundred prominent artists/architects to produce a drawing or other work of art in some way related to or inspired by ‘their’ square. This year we are venturing into the culturally diverse district of Brixton with the theme of ‘100 translated spaces’. Artists confirmed for the upcoming 10x10 include Antony Gormley, Richard Meier and Kengo Kuma amongst others.
