10×10 London Event – 13 Dec 2011
Re-examining the City – 10×10 London
Every day millions of people walk through the City of London. They walk past ancient landmarks, historic buildings and modern megaliths, but most of these architectural points of interest go unnoticed.
To remedy this, “10×10” was created. A drawing event that sent 100 artists and architects out onto the streets of London to rediscover these beautiful, yet hidden and forgotten, details of the City. The works that were created were then auctioned in aid of Article 25 on December 1st at the stunning German Gymnasium at Kings Cross raising over £82,000 for the charity.

Chetwoods director, Mark Dorril, says: “We were looking for a partner and found Kristin Jarmund on the BDCSE best practice website.” Dorril has visited KJA and several of its Norwegian school projects. “Their level of innovation in the Norwegian education sector is high and it is of a type that can be transferred well to the more conservative UK market.”
The partnership will see Chetwoods act as lead architect, employing KJA as a consultant during the design process. Chetwoods will provide architectural resources for the delivery of projects.
Kristin Jarmund of KJA, says: “We are delighted to have the opportunity of collaborating with Chetwoods; a British architectural firm of high standards. We believe that our extensive experience of building new Norwegian schools will allow us to contribute with ideas and qualities that can be of interest to the development of school projects with Chetwood Associates in Derbyshire.”
