Architects Draw: Charity Auction

APTOPIX Britain Auction

Architects are historically renowned for drawing, so the idea of a charity auction of architects’ drawings as a fundraiser for our participation in the High Court Appeal over the Basin Bridge Board of Inquiry Decision is a natural one. But we’re aiming for it to be a bit bigger than drawings and architects, with an auction which represents the broader arts community of Wellington (and New Zealand).
