A Suffolk architect has beens selected as one of 100 artists to feature in a prominent charity auction.

Charles Curry-Hyde, an Australian-registered architect now based in Ipswich, has been invited to submit a piece for this year’s 10x10 sale at the London headquarters of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) on November 29.

The sale brings together 100 participants who are each asked to create a piece giving a different perspective on the capital city.

Proceeds will go to Article 25 which works with local communities to develop sustainable buildings such as schools, health clinics and training centres.

Mr Curry-Hyde, who has been involved in projects including the Avenue Theatre for Red Rose Chain in Ipswich and the Whisstocks boatyard development in Woodbridge, said: “It is an honour to be asked to contribute to this very special fundraising event.

“As an architect, the built environment and how humans interact with it inspires me and London is home to some of the world’s most impressive landmarks and a diverse and multicultural community. I will be considering carefully which elements to incorporate into my piece.”

A spokesman for the event said: “10×10 is a unique concept, with the architects, designers and artists producing wonderful pieces of artwork inspired by the environment they help to create, as well as providing a commentary and critique on the constantly changing landscape of London.

“Every year, 10×10 zooms in on a different part of the capital. This year, we are excited to announce that the theme is Brixton, giving our artists the opportunity to explore the vital role this south London district has played in shaping the city and draw inspiration from its rich cultural diversity.”

Last year 10x10 raised more than £51,000 for Article 25 and had the River Thames as its theme.
