Architecture for Humanity has had a busy year. From continuing efforts in Haiti and Japan to their Post-Sandy initiative to open two new offices in New York and New Jersey, they could use a little help to get to their annual goal.

So they're auctioning off 7 sketches from famous architects - from Steven Holl to Renzo Piano to Frank Gehry. Everyday this week (starting today!), they will announce which architect's sketch is the piece of the day on their web site. The first $5K donation before 12pm PST gets the artwork.

Check out which other famous architects have contributed their sketches, after the break...
