Architecture 256: Africa's Premier Magazine Architecture 256

10A10 : London


10×10 is a unique concept, with the architects, designers and artists producing artwork inspired by the environment they help to create, as well as providing a commentary and critique on the constantly changing landscape of the capital. These works will be auctioned off during a special fundraising reception at the RIBA in London on Monday 20th November 2017. This year 10×10 has asked artists to use the neighbourhoods around East London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park as inspiration. A remarkable aspect of the London’s approach to the 2012 Games was an absolute focus on legacy. The legacy not only for the future of this part of London, but the legacy for communities world-wide: through inspiring children and young adults to realise their potential and fulfil their ambitions. That has deep resonance with Article 25’s work with vulnerable communities across many continents. Zaha Hadid Design has created “Aquatics”, a work based on the roof structure of the London Aquatics Centre in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park whose undulating lines are a translation of the fluid geometries of water in motion.
