The artworks are to be auctioned off to help fund the charity, which works on sustainable architecture projects in disaster relief zones or areas of extreme poverty.

The works have been created for Article 25’s annual 10×10 project. This sees an imaginary grid of 100 squares laid over the City of London, with each participant given a square of the grid and asked to create an artwork inspired by it.

This year the Shard is at the centre of the grid, and many of the works respond to it or offer views of it.
