"I Love Architecture" Auction Picks

Architecture for Humanity's "I Love Architecture" Charity Auction on ebay collects some pretty big names, including Frank Gehry, Steven Holl, Renzo Piano, Richard Meier, Bjarke Ingels, and Daniel Libeskind. Most of the pieces -- 100% of the proceeds benefit Architecture for Humanity -- are reproductions of older sketches and other drawings, though some of the (mainly) architects did special drawings for the occasion. If you're interested in donating money to AFH, and getting a fine artifact in the process, all of the pieces are worth browsing (be sure to scroll past the thumbnails on the main auction page for the full list). Below are close-ups from a few of my favorites from the roughly 70 pieces up for auction from June 19-29.

  1. What a great collection of work, from the architectural drawings to the looser sketches and other media. I love how tactile they are - how the connection between the hand and the mind is evident...
