‘Colouring the City’, hand-drawn on a digital tablet by Laurie Chetwood, has been selected for the live auction at 10×10 Drawing the City, Article 25’s annual flagship fundraiser. The 2017 auction will take place at the Royal Institute of British Architects on Monday 20th November.
The 10×10 Drawing the City brief to 100 architects and artists was based on the legacy of the 2012 London Olympic Games in Stratford, where the iconic Olympic Park, now called Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, was created. Each invited participant was allocated a square on a 10×10 grid map of the area with this brief: ‘Stratford is a good example of how architectural development can change a place and people’s lifestyles…We want artists to look deeper into lives, community interactions and the separation between Stratford and its surroundings. We want to examine the legacy left by the promises of the Olympic organisation and the government’.
‘Colouring the City’ uses the Olympic Stadium as a gateway for the natural regeneration that the 2012 Olympics brought to Stratford, colouring the surrounding area in the central section in contrast to the surrounding monochromatic landscape.
