You’d better hurry if you want to snag some artwork from your favorite starchitects like Bjarke Ingels, Richard Meier, or Daniel Libeskind, there’s only a few hours left to bid on items in Architecture for Humanity’s fundraising acution, “I Love Architecture,” which ends tonight at 7:00 p.m. The organization, which coordinates sustainable development projects, is dedicated to design that “creates lasting change in communities.” Architecture for Humanity acknowledges that many are not able to afford the expertise of an architect yet the help of an architect could contribute greatly to their community. The organization aims to raise $150,000 auctioning sketches donated by notable architects. Among the 60 contributors who have provided original sketches to be auctioned are Renzo Piano, BIG, Michael Graves, SHoP, Paolo Soleri, and Fumihiko Maki. To learn more about the contest visit the organization’s website or view the sketches.

    Libeskind drew a picture of himself? Can this self-absorbed dork’s ego be more off the charts?

    While Craig Dykers and Renzo Piano clearly know how to draw, most of the sketches listed are embarrassingly pretentious. Steven Holl’s cack-handed watercolors are about as interesting as a coffee stain. Compare them to the throw-away esquisse of any Beaux Arts student and they will be seen for the crass doodles they really are. As for Daniel Libeskind’s indulgent self portrait …. common courtesy prohibits comment.

    Most of these embarrassingly crappy drawings didn’t even get a single bid. Proof that most of these pretentious architects are lousy at drawing, and the public can see that. Libeskind, Holl … are you guys listening. Try to take notes and learn from this!
