Rafael Viñoly donates artowrk to Article 25's 10x10 auction in London
Rafael Viñoly Architects' Founder and Lead Designer Rafael Viñoly has donated artwork to the 10x10 auction in London. The annual event raises funds in support of Article 25, the United Kingdom's leading architectural and construction aid charity. Article 25 designs and oversees construction of safe, appropriate buildings in the developing world that ensure basic needs like heath are met. The auction will take place at RIBA London on 1st of December.
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.
Staffed by a team of skilled professionals and volunteers with essential experience working in both the developing and developed world, Article 25 has the ability to deal with situations which involve high levels of risk, requiring an agile response to project management whilst providing a service expected from a professional design practice.
Since its foundation in 2006, Article 25 has worked on over sixty projects in more than twenty-five countries, making a difference to thousands of beneficiaries. The proceeds from the 10×10 London auction allows Article 25 to continue its work in the world’s most vulnerable communities.
