Cameron Sinclair loves architecture. And so do many others. It began with a simple ‘ode’ to architecture, which was re-tweeted and posted on Facebook hundreds of times, obviously striking a cord. Co-Founder, Cameron Sinclair’s charitable endeavor: Architecture for Humanity’s spring fundraising campaign – The “I Love Architecture” Charity Auction called on those in and around the industry to share why they Love Architecture. A perfect Valentine’s Day gift I would say.
“My career took a left turn and for the past thirteen years I’ve been part of a movement focused on engaging the expertise and experience of the industry for those less fortunate and in communities similar to the one I was brought up in. Every day I get to see architects, engineers and builders working together shaping the environment for the betterment of others. Despite what some in our profession say it is not easy work but it is easy to tell why my architects love architecture. They see it every day and thanks to them, so do I.”
WWe jumped at the great public response and used the opportunity to reach out to the biggest names and talents in the field; thus the I Love Architecture Art+Architecture Auction was born.
Over 50 designers and architects, including Renzo Piano, Frank Gehry, Richard Meier, Steven Holl, Kengo Kuma, Snohetta, Jeanne Gang, and more, showed HUGE architecture love by donating over 70 original and one-of-a kind hand sketches, renderings, prints, paintings etc. The pieces were auctioned off at ebay.com/architectureforhumanity, between June 19 – June 29, with all proceeds going to support our humanitarian projects in over 20 countries.
Who says design cannot be charitable?
Have an infinitely modern day!
