Join us at 10 x 10 Drawing the City London 2019! This year the event will be held at the Royal institute of British Architects to raise funds in support of Article 25 and its ongoing work with vulnerable communities around the world.

10×10 London is Article 25’s flagship fundraising event. It brings together 100 prominent artists, designers, and architects to create 100 pieces of art, offering 100 unique reflections on the constantly changing landscape of the city.

Presenting this year's donation: Crowley’s Wharf Coal Loader Jetty

Crowley’s Coal Loader Jetty, now derelict, still stands as a robust piece of Victorian infrastructure just downstream from the Greenwich Royal Naval Hospital. Fourteen substantial cast iron Doric columns support a filigree grillage of rusting steel sections. A laser scan of the structure (conducted somewhat perilously from the Thames foreshore at low tide) allowed a plan view of the structure to reveal its calm dignity. The first image looks down to locate the wharf within its riverside context. The second looks upwards to set it against a London sky
