10x10 brings together 100 of the world’s best architects and artists into the most famous city in the world, the City of London, to draw at their own expense for Article 25. The City is one square mile and every corner contains two thousand years of great architecture. From Wren to Foster, from Soane to Koolhaas the City has exquisite buildings and spaces which have, in turn been captured by today’s best talent. Article 25 thanks the participants of 10x10 for their generosity and now asks you to match their spirit by digging deep and bidding high. Here’s your chance to secure a piece of history, for a very good cause. Article 25 is the UK’s leading architectural humanitarian charity - we need your support.

10x10 was founded in one of the world’s great financial centres; the City of London. Its aim is to raise money for essential projects in developing countries. It began as a celebration of three things: firstly, the process of looking at the city; stopping, listening and putting pen to paper. Secondly, the process of making choices; deciding what to draw - picking favourites – and articulating those choices. Thirdly it is a celebration both of the individual and the collective - a many-layered ‘snapshot’ of the City. Thanks go to all those who have contributed; with drawings, with their time and with sponsorship. We hope that this will be the first of many 10x10’s, both in London and in other cities around the World. Tim Makower Allies and Morrison

Jack Pringle Chair of Article 25


“10x10 London – Drawing the City” is a unique project, dividing the City of London into a 10x10 grid. Each piece has been created for this event by prominent architects and artists. Initiated by architects Tim Makower and Stephen Taylor and supported by Argent and Sotheby’s, 10x10 is set to become an annual and international event. Proceeds from this event will support the built environment charity Article 25’s ongoing projects including a school building in Burkina Faso. All of our contributors took to the pavements of London to produce a truly distinctive and dynamic collection and, as we think you will agree, form a truly unique showcase of British architectural heritage. The resulting works highlight some of the most beautiful aspects of the city as well as the hidden and forgotten details that are regularly overlooked. This project is a unique concept, with the designers of the City collaborating during one weekend and turning their gaze back to the built environment they helped to create as well as providing a commentary and critique on the constantly changing landscape of central London. These original and striking pieces, documenting the changing cityscape of London are being auctioned by Sotheby’s at an exclusive event on 1st December, 2011 at the German Gymnasium, courtesy of King’s Cross.


Live & Silent Auction A selection of 25 pieces will be auctioned live on Thursday 1st December at The German Gymnasium, Kings Cross Central.

Article 25 envisions a world where this human right to adequate shelter is met; a world where there is never a life nor livelihood lost due to the lack of a building, appropriate design or construction skills. Currently over 1 billion people live without adequate shelter, which acts as a major barrier to health, safety and poverty reduction. Article 25 works with communities, charities and NGOs in developing countries and postdisaster areas. We provide safe, cost-effective, and appropriate design, and construction management for building projects that provide a vehicle to break a cycle of poverty. Each physical building project also acts as a capacity building project; we train local communities in safe construction skills that will have a lasting impact long after our role is complete. In 5 short years, Article 25 has worked on over 50 projects in 23 countries,

making a difference to thousands of beneficiaries. There are still hundreds of thousands of people that still need our help. 10x10 Drawing the City demonstrates that the world of art and architecture supports the need for safe design around the world. The proceeds from this auction will support “Child Friendly” secondary schools in Burkina Faso, schools that are earthquake and hurricane resistant in Haiti and many more worthy projects.

“Physic Garden”
Watercolour on paper 420 x 297 mm

Guide Price £200 - £250


“Here – Where”
Collage on board 410 x 210 mm The City of London is a centuries old, cohesive example of legible urban form; in contrast, touching its north western edge, lays an area of deliberate intent, somewhere conceived and created within a single generation, somewhere of great ambition and achievement. However, between the City and the Barbican any sense of place, location or presence evaporates, the ubiquitous yet chanced upon ‘your are here’ sign makes clear that one actually wasn’t ‘here’ and can only clarify the conundrum of ‘Where’? that could be. Guide Price £100 - £120

“Backs and Fronts”
Acrylic on paper 410 x 297 mm “The site was not treated kindly by the 60’s and is now in transition with major construction works underway. The painting recognizes views out of the site to the Barbican, 84 Moorgate, and the Swiss Re. It also focuses on the contrast between roller shutter doors for delivery at the back of Moor House and fashion and glamour at its front. The picture is seen through the grid of the heras fencing which surrounds so much of the current construction work.” Guide Price £300 - £400

Born 1939 and in private practice since 1977, the current partnership with Edward Jones was formed in 1989. Common to our work as architects has been a concern for the city we work in and the way London has had a particular history different from other European cities. Projects such as housing St Mark’s Road, the Royal Opera House, National Portrait Gallery, Somerset House, etc. all engage with aspects of London’s urban history. We always review the historical background of our sites as a way of giving us a basis for finding a relationship between the new and the old.

“1E - Where are we going?”
Collage on board 420 x 297 mm “Parking my car in the calm environment of Finsbury Circus I walked towards Moorgate and hit a moment of urban hostility. The roadway was fenced in with barricades, buses were queuing nose to tail and the view was of the kind of desolation associated with large building sites. Understandably depressed by my given square, I found it difficult to encapsulate my emotions in a drawing so made a collage to contrast the quiet urbanity of the circus with the emerging chaotic cityscape of random towers.” Guide Price £150 - £200

“A Private Corner”
Watercolour pencil and pencils on paper “A serene corner in a strenuous, exhausting city invited a fatigued passer-by to pause on her journey home. She reclaimed her lost soul on a cold marble bench, its temperature resonated with the gesture. A telephone conversation developed and she began to disconnect from her surroundings; the glazed screens keeping her apart from the velocity of the city. She was thankful to have found a consoling private corner.” Guide Price £150 - £250


“The Urban Void”
Ink on paper 210 x 210 mm “Walking to Finsbury Circus, I realised that the richness of London’s cityscape has little respite. Absorbed by the grandiose setting, I almost lost my bearings as the meticulously crafted facades overwhelmed me. My relief came when the sun shone in my eyes and I was forced to look up. I immediately gained a sense of tranquillity from the never ending blue above me. My sketch observes this powerful image that seemed to transcend any man made form.” Guide Price £200 - £300

“The Octagon”
Giclée print, digital photography with compositing 305 x 406 mm “The Octagon in the Broadgate Estate is an urban space but is not a public space. The use programme is tightly constrained, and commonly held beliefs concerning the justifications for these constraints may not have only a practical basis: The Octagon also has a very strong aesthetic programme, where certain forms and colours are absolutely dominant. Would the haphazard aesthetic of an ‘Occupy …’ demonstration be tolerated at all?” Guide Price £150 - £250

“Saturday Morning at the Station”
Pencil drawing, with watercolour wash version and acrylic paint version 594 x 420 mm “I found myself a quiet spot in the station to sit and draw. It’s not my favourite building because of the ornate Victorian decoration on the cast iron structure but my spirits were lifted by the quality of light streaming through the large modern glazing to the south. It took me some time to set out the composition because of the complexity of the structure but, as it started to take shape, I settled down to enjoy myself.” Guide Price £750 - £850

“Broadgate 142”
Watercolour and ink on paper, size 420 x 295 mm “I was allocated a square right on the edge of the 100 squares and the City, bordering Spitalfields and the East End beyond. I set out to capture the sense of being in between these very different parts of London. I drew fast with my sketchbook leaning against a traffic light to capture the movement and energy and a stream of consciousness. The drawing suggests what lies beyond; the innards of the buildings, the workings below ground, or the history of the city to the west and the Dickensian charms of Spitalfields to the east.” Guide Price £100 - £200

“88 Wood Street: Fragments”
4B and 2B pencil and eraser on paper 410 x 297 mm “The images illustrate skyline and ground level fragments of 88 Wood Street by Richard Rogers and Partners -the stand out building and aspect of this square of the city in my view. What inspires me about this building? It is elegant, contextual, multi facetted. Where its neighbours play constrained games of one dimensional façade manipulation, this building has complexity delivered in a consistent fashion with playful elements to enliven and articulate the streetscape.” Guide Price (2 pieces) £150 - £200

“Metaphorical Landscape”
Watercolour on paper 420 x 297 mm “This is a representation of the north wall under 5 Aldermanbury Square using watercolour as a medium which best captures the shimmering quality of light reflected off the metal threads of the weft of the textiles hanging in front of the light absorbent shuttered concrete walls. Opposite, the other wall that defines the new public space and entrance to the square is also in concrete and carries water that flows down bronze Channels in a literal Opposition to The textiles.” Guide Price £200 - £300

“Lights on the London Wall”
Gouache, marker pen, silver highlighter, Tippex and ball point pen 410 x 297 mm “Our perspective of the city changes as darkness falls. We experience the streets, squares, parks and buildings differently. Vertical surfaces disappear. The colour and texture of the landscape is lost. Buildings become lanterns revealing their patterns of occupation. The dynamic movement of light created by advertising, headlights and signals creates an ever changing layer. There’s beauty to random patterns of light.” Guide Price £300 - £400


Collage on board 420 x 210 mm

“Whether the job in hand is the installation of a new lift (as at London’s Science Museum) or the renewal of an entire district, Lyall’s approach begins with a practical assessment of what is needed and how it can be delivered. To this extent, he is, indeed, a pragmatist who delights in getting things done. But beyond the pragmatic surface, there is the mind of an artist, a maker of form whose architecture

is essentially inclusive, rich and generous in spirit. It is an architecture which is informed by the great urban traditions of the past and offers a new vision of the city of the future.” Ken Powell, Introduction to: “John Lyall Contexts and Catalysts“. Guide Price £80 - £120

“On London Wall”
White ink on black paper 410 x 297 mm “Places exist at multiple scales, revealing activities simultaneously local and global: people coming to, going from or passing through. Occupiers and visitors - indistinguishable one from the other. Present in a scene that extends beyond the field of view. An urban perspective where the background is the static architecture of buildings and the foreground is the kinetic architecture of human activity.”

Guide Price £200 - £300

“The Sky from Finsbury Circus”
Black ink on tracing paper 410 x 297 mm “If the streets and squares of the city are outdoor rooms the sky is the ceiling we rarely notice. These drawings show the shape and edge of the sky as seen past the tops of the buildings looking North, South, East and West. You can read the architecture of the buildings in these lines – the tame Po-Mo of 60 London Wall, the extravagant crenalations of Salisbury House and the classicism of London Wall buildings opposite, both turn of the century.” Guide Price (set of 4) £200 - £250


“I chose this because the rest of my square was pretty boring; the buildings face into the Circus and this seemed the natural focus. It also represented one of the heydays of the City - the Edwardian period when the City was the centre of the mercantile element of the British Empire, a role which was reflected in grand buildings such as this. As Chairman of Wordsearch I have been involved in the editing and design of brochures and other media for

“An impression of Liverpool Street Station”
Watercolour on paper 420 x 297 mm “A sketch, a quick cartoon, full of life and energy – a snapshot of a gateway, an entry and an invitation to travel. 19th century London Railway Terminals are all embracing. They reveal visual interaction of people going in different directions doing different things at different speeds. All these Terminals herald 20th century modernism and technology – a whole history of metal and glass development.” Guide Price £200 - £400

“I have always admired Hawksmoor’s buildings, the strength, the clarity, the sheer guts. You cannot ignore a Hawksmoor building. And so: St. Mary Woolnoth ‘like a piece of compressed matter vibrating on its foundations likely to explode at any moment’. (Alastair Service) and of course:

“St. Mary Woolnoth (Nicholas Hawksmoor)”
Ink on cartridge paper “A crowd flowed over London Bridge, so many - I had not thought death had undone so many. - Sighs, short and infrequent, were exhaled, - And each man fixed his eyes before his feet. - Flowed up the hill and down King William Street, - To where Saint Mary Woolnoth kept the hours - With a dead sound on the final stroke of nine.” T.S.Eliot. The Waste Land (1922). Enough said....” Guide Price £250 - £350

“London by London”
Print of 40 original sketches by members of the public at Liverpool Street Station “For us the most important element of architecture is the experience. Rather than draw our square we wanted to see how the public viewed the space. We spent 8 hours outside Liverpool Street Station with sketch pads, pens, and a steely resolve against rejection. The public were given a continuous outline of the scene we prepared and the opportunity to draw what they saw. These results demonstrate that people see more than expected.” Guide Price £300 - £400

“Threadneedle Street”
Pencil on paper 297 x 420 mm “I only had 3 hours to complete my drawing and had to choose my view quickly. Threadneedle Street was obvious- but also the most irresistibly challenging. The building site, with stacked tower cranes frame the early fabric of the Merchant Tailors’ institution. In the background two icons of the city, Nat West Tower & Swiss Re, loom. In the foreground another building is undergoing a transformation: the constantly evolving nature of the city.” Guide Price £150 - £200

“London Wall at Night”
Mixed media on paper 420 x 297 mm “When I do a drawing the same as when I design a building, I work on it until I’m happy. I am incapable of doing an instant piece. There comes a point in the process where I’m content. The building in the foreground – One Coleman Street by David Walker Architects – is extraordinary. I come from a family of painters, as well as of architects, so I’m inclined to paint. The painting is a night shot because the view is more dramatic in the dark.” Guide Price £300 - £400

“Austin Friars” & “Austin Friars Reflected”
Pen on paper 2 pieces 410 mm x 297 mm “On first looking at my square I was puzzled as to what to draw, a quiet back street behind London Wall. Interestingly Austin Friars was home to Thomas Cromwell, a priory that was ‘sprung’ from the Church. Part of this is now the Drapers Hall with a tiny garden in an otherwise hard surfaced place. I drew here until the street cleaners moved me on and turning, drew the view reflected in the glass office block on Throgmorton Avenue. In reflection the view is more sinister - darker and distorted”. Guide Price (2 pieces) £300 - £400

“Monochrome: Impressions of the City”
Pencil & Ink on paper 297 x 420 mm “3G presents the embodiment of London’s juxtaposition of old and new architecture. The towering Building 42, and Swiss Re Headquarters - the backdrop for quainter buildings lining Great Winchester Street. On a grey Saturday morning the city seems engulfed in a monochromatic aura; it lacks its usual vibrancy and the people that animate the streets on a weekday. Faced with those mystical entities - Tower 42 and the Swiss Re Headquarters soaring above the city is reinvented.” Guide Price £80 - £120


“Level 42”
Hand crafted work of art in fuse glass , mounted in light fitting 260 X 560 x 6 mm “‘Level 42’ glass artwork is the view of the crossroads taken from the Nat West tower café bar on 42nd floor.

“The Golden False Acacia”
Watercolour & blue pencil on paper 420 x 297 mm “I am at a crossroads – Bishopsgate, Camomile, Wormwood. What shall I draw? A shiny Heron or a slice of London’s Higgeldy Piggeldy ? An empty corner, as structures rise and fall in preparation for 100 Bishopsgate (A&M’s skirted beauty)? No. I will sit on a wall on a grey afternoon in a quiet London churchyard and paint the saturated green of the ‘Golden False Acacia’ tree, against the warm pink of St Botolph’s.” Guide Price £150 - £250

“Life of a crane”
Metallic print on MDF 594 x 420 mm “I am absolutely fascinated by cranes in the sky. They often tell the story of the everchanging built environment and remind us when change is taking place, like migrating birds. Their resemblance to birds is quite remarkable in the way that they roost on top of structures, flock to areas in groups, and move elegantly, like real life cranes. This piece is a homage to the city crane and its exciting life atop the rooflines.” Guide Price £400 - £500


“Restaurant, Gutter Lane”
Pencil on paper 420 x 297 mm “Surrounded by anonymous corporate offices I was touched by this sensitive and thoughtful contemporary intervention. Finding this charming, but unassuming building was a bit of a discovery. Ultimately it reflects some of the concerns we have in our work - the creation of serene and humane space.”

“Guildhall / Overcast”
Graphite and ink on paper 410 x 297 mm “Guildhall is an extraordinary place Although I design cities, I’m originally from New York, a relatively new city. I liked the idea that the original mass of the Roman amphitheatre and the remains of a great 13th-century gatehouse influenced the siting of the current buildings. You can imagine 2000 years of history by looking at the open spaces. It was a cold and overcast day, and there were very few people around. I shared cups of cocoa with Victoria Jinivizian who was working on her drawing around the corner.” Guide Price £500 - £600

“Most of the work of my practice is small scale refurbishment in central London, for private residential clients although we have worked on Hotels, and for an organisation that looks after street people. For twelve years I had a monthly column in Building. I am interested in illustration, (not especially architectural illustration) line drawings, caricatures and cartoons. I bought and restored 2 derelict 1830’s terrace houses in Stepney 35 years ago and we have been living there ever since.”

“Gresham Street Blues”
Pencil drawing with marker and aquarrel pencil and watercolour brush 297 x 420 mm “Something amazing about London, as an architect, is the way one is constantly surprised by buildings and places that one never knew existed. I had walked past St. Lawrence Jury without taking in the little pond. When I decided to draw it in situ I found myself wanting to show the sixties baroque Seifert building in the foreground, in contrast with the tiny pond. It was a chilly November day so I opted for a financial figure in the picture.” Guide Price £150 - £250


“Towards Lothbury from Gresham Street”
Pencil drawing 841 x 594 mm “From the threshold of my square, the view of Lothbury from Gresham Street demanded to be drawn. It contains visual excitement in architectural terms, materials and colour: reds and pale blue greens punctuating the various grey spaces. Clean curves lead to intricate lines and shapes which clamour into view - relieved by blank sky. The Bank of England is nudged right by the Bank of China and the tree rising from the pavement between them, a lonely note of nature amongst these monumental facades.” Guide Price £400 - £500

Victoria Jinivizian is a painter and poet graduating from The Slade in 1995. As well as undertaking commissioned work she has exhibited in many group exhibitions in London and held two person shows with painter Toby Wiggins in Bath and Marlborough.

“Trained as an architect, I work mainly as a developer and housebuilder. Painting and drawing is a good way for me to keep looking at places and things, rather than getting overwhelmed with the joys and troubles of getting projects to work.”

Watercolour on paper “The City of London seems odd as the parent of the bigger London which I know. I don’t have any connection with the bank buildings and the dense street pattern which I know tells of a medieval history. My drawing takes a piece of pavement, something common to most of London. Here it is stone, big pieces which I don’t imagine would be laid now. Over the top of this rather noble layer comes the information from services surveyors, coded and mystifying in their colours.” Guide Price £200 - £300


“Fibrous Lumina”
Digital print 420 x 297 mm “Fibrous Lumina has a feel of very intricate hand drawing - yet it is completely synthetic and “unnatural”. It was generated by filtering data of the light values sampled from the built fabrics on the site. Levels of brightness control the density of fibrous drawing. Brighter areas have less density and vice versa. Such data from physics of light, humidity, air flow and similar could be incorporated in designing higher resolution architecture, which has been one of the obsessions and research areas of Biothing.” Guide Price £250 - £350

“Credit Crunch”
Digital print 420 x 297 mm “Square 4H in the 10x10 grid includes Tower 42 and I used site images to create a mosaic of a credit card. By making a patchwork of city images, I wanted to reflect the area’s fascinating mixture of new and old buildings, as well as our different perspectives of what happens in the square mile – the way we see the city from the outside, looking in, and the consequences, closer up, of the credit crunch for the people based there.” Guide Price £250 - £300


“Old City New City’”
Pencil on paper 420 x 297 mm “I found it fascinating to see the Gherkin juxtaposed with the historic City and even more construction underway, including the figure of the builder as a symbol of this.”

“St-Mary-Le-Bow, London Ec2”
Digital imaging printout on card 400 x 200 mm “This image is about the miracle of London. The duplication turns our church into a corner Palazzo of the Italian Renaissance, mysterious events unfold. The gentleman (centre) paces away from his reflection in the cityscape’s invisible mirror. Buses run on the wrong side of the road. Shadows form on alternate sides, while a sign informs us that the church is open Saturday. Just another day in the capital.”

“Dawn Glow, square 5D, Square Mile, London 2011”
Photographic print 420 x 297 mm “I like the shot as the sun came up predawn on a clear day on people hurrying to work, dwarfed by one of the massive buildings of the City. The harsh facade was softened by the dawn glow and the smile of a cheerful ‘putto’ overlooking the procession below. The building has plenty of rhythm and detail to discover. I had fun exploring a chunk of the square mile, struck by the fantastic diversity of scale, style, texture and symbol.” Guide Price (Set of 4 and 2) £450 - £650


“Bank of England”
Pen & watercolour on paper 440 x 360 mm “The piece focuses on the north-west corner of the Bank of England: I am particularly interested in the objects that accrete in our streetscapes; phone boxes, electrical boxes, traffic signs, and the recently added wayfinding points for bicycles. As I drew at the weekend, the streets were quiet save for a few stray tourists – could I point them in the direction of the Tower of London? Another man was looking for a gym – Did I know where it could it be?” Guide Price £200 - £250

“An Architectural Pantheon”
Collage and black ink drawing 297 × 420 mm “At this city intersection John Soane (Bank of England 1808) is placed in this Pantheon of English Architects – with Wren (St Stephens Walbrook 1672), Hawksmoor (St Mary Woolnoth 1716), Dance (Mansion House 1739), followed by Lutyens (ex Midland Bank 1924), Cooper (National Westminster Bank 1930) and Stirling (No.1 Poultry 1994).

“Speckled Jim”
Mixed media 420 x 297 mm “The pigeon is a symbol of our increasingly urbanised lives. Walking through the desolate city on a Sunday morning it felt fitting to capture the moment, the bird landing on the Royal Exchange. The city is the amalgamation of these seemingly unimportant moments. Collecting them in drawings they help assemble an image of the city in our minds; a tool that helps us understand our place within it.”

Guide Price £400 - £600


“Profound is the Air”
Collage 210 x 240 mm “London Wall is a superimposition of different strata in the City of London. This work tackles the particular encounter between two pieces of urban fabric in the City: the Victorian - heavy, stolid and stable - and the contemporary - light, fickle and changing -. The encounter is “spatilised” as an architectural experience/proposition which reflects on the dialectics of the city history and global cities condition today.”

“Kokoro Shelter Globe”
Collage and message 410 mm x 205 mm “The architecture exists in present, but it is absent from this era and goes to any other places or times. The presence of architecture stimulates human subconscious. There comes a mysterious world when it is floating around the utopia in the subconscious. It is the fantasy of architecture that future architecture should aim spiritually.”

“Swiss Re is instantly recognisable from above. You can see the space at the pinnacle is for people to enjoy the incredible views. This top is different from all the towers. Their tops are filled with machinery. Our tower embodies diverse values – about conserving energy, making the workplace more enjoyable by bringing light, views and fresh air deep into the heart of the interior.

“30 St Mary Axe”
Pencil on paper 210 × 297 mm People communicate within the building in the same way that the tower communicates with the city itself. We are proud that the “gherkin” has become a popular symbol of London. It was impossible to resist the temptation to sketch it for Article 25’s auction – showing it lit up like a beacon with the green lungs that wrap around it.”

“Gin Lane 2”
Digital print Size to order “The piece of art is based on Hogarth’s ‘Gin Lane’ which was a commentary on the ills of the day, fuelled by Gin and the detrimental effects it had on people’s lives. This work is brought up-to-date with a sample of some of the ills that afflict our society today - all in the shadow of St Mary-Le-Beau Church. The Church was immortalised in the nursery rhyme Oranges and Lemons, according to tradition, a true Cockney must be born within earshot of the sound of its bells.” Guide Price £800 - £1000

“The Yellow Column””
Graphite and pastel on paper 410 x 295 mm “Number One Poultry is a very humane building usually full of people making their way to work. There are people sitting at cafes drinking a coffee or drinking at the pub: it is a hubbub of busy urban life. On the top floor, those with money enjoy the terrace restaurant of the Coq d’Argent. At the back of the building, away from the main streets, is a pub with a yellow column, inside and out. People sit near this column, quietly, away from the crowds and traffic.” Guide Price £175 - £250


“Suspended Movement”
Collage on board 420 x 297 mm “The objective was to capture the dynamic of this square, a complex system trapped between Stirling’s architecture and the London Magistrate Court. In a collage the diversity and complexity of the square is heightened. The graphic movement of architecture is exposed and exploited through the two main vanishing points whilst the Magistrate Court, a prominent figure, is portrayed as a monolithic shape. The monolith appears to be suspended in the movement, creating a sense of cognitive disorientation.” Guide Price £250 - £350

“All the Commuters”
Painting on board 500 x 330 mm “‘All The Commuters’ is a portrait of the workers crossing the public space in Simon Haddock’s square. The cloud-like formation is suggestive of a map of the world, recalling the many nationalities that populate our great city.”

Haddock’s works are crafted and tooled from mdf and energized by colour. They evoke a spatiality which provides a new sensory navigation through urban space.

“Cornhill Decorum”
Watercolour on paper 400 x 400 mm “A series of grand banking palazzos face the Royal Exchange along the southern side of Cornhill, interestingly, small pedestrian laneways penetrate the block and are deftly integrated into the architecture of the facades. The entrance to each is balanced by a matching interior doorway on the opposite side of the elevation, both openings are treated with equal weight, the effect downplays the visibility of the public routes, stressing their intimate, interior quality. The architectural approach is one of order and decorum.” Guide Price £120 - £250

“Lloyds Building at Sunset”
Pen, ink, watercolour and gouache on paper 310 x 410 mm “I chose this view as it was the best view. The Lloyds building has always been one of those hairy feminine buildings in a city which is hard, sheer and very masculine in contrast to the staid and morose surroundings of the Edwardian Architecture.”

Photographic collage 410 x 297mm “With 50% of buildings in the Square Mile demolished and replaced since 1985, historic locations such as the Mansion House are now traffic junctions surrounded by a depressing array of sub-standard office blocks. Views of world-renowned monuments are obliterated or suffocated. The scale of new developments is incongruous, materials unsympathetic to context with overall design and detailing clumsy. The identity of the City is in danger of being lost forever. Action is needed urgently to STOP THE ROT.” Guide Price £150 - £250

“London Stoned”
Digital print 297 x 420 mm “My area was Cannon Street, home to the London Stone, rumoured to be the centre of London and the marker for Roman measurements of distances. Mentioned by Shakespeare and Dickens, I am fascinated by its mysterious history.

“I work as a full time architect in Clerkenwell, and as a children’s book illustrator and budding photographer during any spare moment I can steal. I grew up reading Roald Dahl books, and particularly enjoyed Quentin Blake’s wry illustrations, which led me onto making my own short stories with an emphasis on the illustrations. I’m currently working on a rather macabre illustrative story, which was inspired by a work trip to Boston, where there was an abundance of fat squirrels!”

“Lombard 24”
Watercolour and ink illustration on watercolour paper 410 x 297 mm “This impressive and rather saucy sculptural scene situated in Lombard Street above the entrance to an insurance company is surprising, considering the position between large-scale offices of the 90s- 00`s, with Wrens church and a late 18th century office opposite. Presumably the entrance was commissioned to demonstrate power when the building was built in 1910, at a time when most banks had head offices in Lombard Street.” Guide Price £275 - £350

I chose this view as I am always attracted to the complexities of geometries and the lines that scaffoldings and structural bars create on building sites. This one is a particularly amazing and complex site on Fenchurch Street and my eyes were immediately drawn to it. However, I decided that this site was interesting as it could be any location, but at the same time was very specific to London in its scale, complexity, the background buildings and the cores being created.

“Temporal Fragments of Lines, London”
A series of 3 sketches by hand on card with colours/paint in digital application “I wanted to make a drawing that was more abstract than literal, so that the drawing itself was a kind of an architectural ‘idea’, rather than just an observation. So, I separated some of the ‘surfaces’ and the ‘objects’ from the ‘lines’ and the ‘bars’ in the way colour was applied to the drawing. I have always being fascinated by the delicate lines and lightweight elements forming spaces.” Guide Price £350 - £450

“Threadneedle Street”
Pencil on paper 297 x 210 mm “Walking around I was most drawn to this viewpoint along Threadneedle Street from Bank Station. I’m always attracted to the juxtaposition of old and new buildings and I liked that I could see the ‘Gherkin’ out of the corner of my eye, with older and heavier buildings in the foreground. As an illustrator I like to play with perspective and explore different aspects of the scene as I draw. I find that this often results in a playful depiction of my surroundings.” Guide Price £175 - £250

SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) model Scale 1:500, 170 x 170 x 445 mm “Aesthetically, the SLS technique employed on this model highlights the careful composition of glass spiralling from ground level to the top, both on the interior and exterior that makes up the surface of ‘The Gherkin’. With energy and performance a concern, this environmentally conscious structure is a defining feature of London’s skyline, a landmark of internationally renowned architecture.”

Pencil on paper 410 x 205 mm

“An historic part of the City where the extraordinary Dick Whittington, four times mayor, first fleeced the system and then gave big to charities. Now bounded by Cannon Street Station – benign and Lower Thames Street – diabolical (the bit where the fur traders used to be). The former has a huge building over it with an X structure that seems to be a 70’s retro

style exclusive to this particular area of the City. The latter ruins a pocket park called Whitington Gardens. Seeming to challenge the charging traffic are two identical bronze casts of a caped horseman by Duilio Camberllotti (Plaster 1924, Casts 2005) which seemed more exciting than the buildings.” Guide Price £250 - £350

Permanent marker on heavyweight matt paper 420 x 297 mm “Turning up Abchurch Lane on the North of Canon Street you arrive in Abchurch Yard. The courtyard paving depicts a radiant centre with orbiting globes. The sky above has a jagged profile, but one side of the yard is formed by St Mary Abchurch, a Wren Church of 1686. Once inside the church and looking up, you find an unusual domed ceiling, with the same illustration depicting a central radiance and four ovoid rooflights.” Guide Price £200 - £300

“Oranges and lemons”
Chalks on paper 420 x 300 mm chalk pastels spread out I might as well have been a statue. I like the contrast between the office workers’ homeward rush and the quieting gloom of the back street; like sitting still on a rock with the tide sweeping past. Watching the daylight being replaced by municipal lighting is theatrical; local colours morph into that odd indefinite palette of warm yellowgreys, while tonal contrasts deepen. It is a meditative experience I would recommend, to feel for a few moments richly connected with the life of the City, yet set apart.” Guide Price £400 - £600

“Small, Big, Small?”
Coloured pencil on tracing paper 420 x 297 mm “The drawing looks at the changes to the site over the last 130 years, and explores how it might change over the next century. It questions whether the shift to increasingly large organisations and simplification of land use with the impact of this on the City grain is inexorable, or whether changes in technology, energy availability will mean a reversal of scale and increasing complexity.”

Felt tip pen and highlighter pen on cartridge paper 420 x 210 mm “The work records a moment in time and reflects upon the relationship between acts of creation, between reality and contingent reality, equality and inequality and the displacement of the church, in the reading of the City and it’s skyline, by new edifices of commerce.”

“In my square I was particularly interested in the public realm which was largely ‘Behind Bars’ especially on a Saturday. Most courtyards were gated with no public access. I chose a series of views that typified the tall narrow view corridors that you find in that part of the City. These fit with the tall, narrow proportions of a railing or fence. I noticed that there were many references to animals, the statue of a horse, a sheep on a gate, references to cows and cocks in text on the pavement. What is most striking about the area is

“Behind Bars”
Photography, acetone transfer, pen and ink on cartridge paper 370 x 210 mm the mix of historic buildings and striking contemporary buildings like Lloyds and the Swiss Re building by Fosters where I worked for ten years. The public realm is such a vital part of a vibrant and contemporary city. The more the public realm becomes truly ‘public’ the livelier a city will be.”

Guide Price £175 - £250


“Mortality reminder at St. Olave’s”
Pencil and crayon on paper 420 x 297 mm “My square is at the eastern edge of the 10x10 grid where Fenchurch Street commuters pile out into the lanes of EC3 and at the weekend tourists stroll to The Tower. Amidst the banal post war offices is a vestige of life and death in The City in Pepys’ church, St. Olave’s.”

“City Line”
Welded steel, board and sand 410 x 280 mm “The site I was given is layered with contradictions. Densely built with high real estate value, the Saturday morning I visited the buildings and streets were deserted. Occasional street cleaners tidy the last of rubbish away and all that was left was a ghost of the forgotten past quietly asking to be listening too. The steel frame draws the empty space of a ground floor office mid-way through its regeneration some spaces missing; it speaks of the material and space of the city.” Guide Price £400 - £600

Pencil and pencil crayon on watercolour paper 420 x 297 mm “Throgmorton Street; named in honour of former resident Sir Nicholas Throckmorton, Chief Banker of England in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. The view looking East encapsulates the mutating DNA of the City from the historic street plan, to the location of the Drapers’ Company who have occupied the North-side since 1541 and the juxtaposition of all architectural styles and scales. The scaffolding across the street reminds us of constant change.” Guide Price £250 - £350

“Ivan and Rey playing on the river bed”
Ink on cartridge paper 410 x 297 mm “Our site, on a mild afternoon on Sunday 9 October, was dominated by traffic moving at speed. We walked towards the river, less drawn to the view than the need to escape the traffic. At the end is a pub called The Banker and we descended steps to the river. At low tide the river bed is a mixture of pebbles, old timber, clay tiles and hundreds of bone fragments. Below the level of the street, within the dank, green tidal zone something of the character of an older London re-establishes itself.” Guide Price £200 - £300


“The Transience of Man on Earth”
Collage on foam board 841 x 594 mm This piece is our interpretation of the laying down of the rich ground layers of history which have informed the development of our City grid square. The story begins with the settlement of the Thames-soaked marshes, how people built and used the man-made structures and celebrated spaces over time to the individual who passes through it today. It is also representational of man’s transience on Earth and how we can inform it.” Guide Price £175 - £300

“Townshend Landscape Architects have drawn inspiration from the transient nature of this hard, dark and noisy place. People move in and out of it quickly, the trees shed their annual foliage; buildings are constructed and reconstructed over the decades whilst some loved landmarks and lanes survive for centuries.


“Something in the City...”
Caran D’Arche soft crayon on white cartridge paper 500 x 250 mm “Beside this wall is where city workers linger daily to chat and stub out their cigarettes whilst the surface patina of this wall imperceptibly evolves. Decade after decade. A mysterious rusting cabinet survives with its crumbling surround. It is the backdrop to an everyday side of the life of the City which complements that played out behind the sleek walls of granite and glass and metal but whose surface will forever remain the same, ageless, silent and, for me un-drawn.” Guide Price £500 - £700

“I grew up being told that I could draw… so being anywhere without something to draw with…just never happens… no piece of paper is safe near me! My drawings have been published and raised funds for causes in the past.”

Photographic laser prints on 300gsm semi gloss paper 410 x 297 mm “I was struck by the volume of people and their constant movement, giving life to a space of limited aesthetic qualities. The workers were countered by directionless tourists looking for the Monument, a significant feature and historic landmark. I thought about representing it, but it’s significance is to remember workers and residents of the City, people who lost their lives in the great fire. So I decided to take pictures each day for two weeks of the people who make the space vibrant.” Guide Price (2 set of 2) £400 - £500

“St. Mary’s At Hill 5 November 2011”
Digital print, 160 x 400 mm “Life in the City of London sometimes feels tolerated. The blocks with fortress like fronts and fluorescent backs are simply doing their job; an evil backdrop for office workers and dreary trudge space for puzzled tourists. This view from the steps of St. Margarets Patterns Church offers an escape to the Thames with the unfinished Shard as a new beacon but the grand old gold clock on the church first built in 1177 stops the eye and makes one think.” Guide Price £300 - £400


“Minster Court”
Acrylic on board “Like much of the City, at street level this is a pretty ordinary townscape. However if you look up the angular profile of the post modern gothic that is Minster Court becomes spooky and disturbing. A Transylvanian landscape of peaks and dark valleys.”

“I am a practicing architect with a reputation for drawings and watercolours. However this site demanded a more painterly approach.”

Guide Price £250 - £350

“The layers of the city”
Layers of card 280 x 440 mm “This is the view from the south bank – a view from within the 100 squares of 10x10 - but encompassing them all. The City’s familiar silhouette is dominated by the railway infrastructure. The viaducts that bisect south London culminate in bridges that become the view. There are five layers – the sky, the silvery outline of the city’s familiar buildings, the tracery of the signal gantries and the bridge, the heroically scaled columns and the passive surface of the river they command.” Guide Price £700 - £1000

“City of London Skyline”
Single reproduction from ink on paper vellum, printed on fine art paper 420 x 297 mm “It is not often possible to stand back and see the City of London skyline from such a close-up view as this. History is captured in silhouette – from the Monument (to the Great Fire) through the Nat West Tower, the Gherkin and (its most recent edition) the Heron Tower. These iconic images rise casually above the more normative “bread and butter” buildings, representing the relentless commercial drive of the City and its ability to re-invent itself.” Guide Price £650 - £750


“London Bridge is Falling Down”
Blue ink on paper 420 mm x 210 mm “The inspiration for ‘London Bridge is Falling Down’ was that the access onto the old London Bridge was under the tower of the church of St. Magnas the Martyr when the River Thames was considerably wider than it is now.”

“Lines and Edges”
Pencil and photocopy images on watercolour paper 410 x 205 mm

“The dominating buildings flanking the chosen site framed the southerly view towards the river. To my surprise, the workin-progress of the Shard was perfectly pictured at the end of this long space. The surrounding facades, columns, paving and even people and plants heightened the sense of claustrophobia. While details blur and colours blended, the lines and edges of the surroundings very quickly

redefined my spatial experience. Each frame of my experience was carefully re-traced onto 116gsm watercolour paper, and the negative spaces painstakingly cut using 10A blades revealing the observed edges. Follow the pencilled instructions on the flip-book to experience the spatial emotions of yet another unpredictable day in London.” Guide Price £700 - £1000

“Facade of 60 Mark Lane”
Pencil drawing on cartridge paper 420 x 297 mm “60 Mark Lane is a five storey office building considered to be one of the earliest speculative buildings of its type. Its load bearing stone facade present a tiered composition of arches and pilasters, each floor a variation on the last. Observing the craftsmanship of this building I am reminded of how the 19th century developers of such buildings saw value in artistic and cultural endeavours, unlike so much office building of today.” Guide Price £200 - £250
