In celebration of their 10-year anniversary, Article 25, the world's largest architectural charity, will hold this year's "10x10 Drawing the City London" event on November 29 at the Royal Institute of British Architects. Each year, representatives from UK's top architecture studios and property and design industries gather to raise funds for Article 25's work in developing countries. The event features an auction of artwork by 100 prominent rising artists, designers, and architects; this year's participants include Kengo Kuma, Richard Meier, Antony Gormley, Zaha Hadid Design, and David Adjaye.
Article 25 works for human rights by designing, building, and managing projects that provide necessary buildings in the world's most vulnerable communities. The organization has completed 82 projects and raised over £500 thousand for their work to date. Current projects include the reconstruction of a hospital in Nepal, design of a solar system installation training center in Burkina Faso, and planning of an inclusive preschool in Tanzania for disabled children.
