One of the lots up for auction, this watercolor drawing by Steven Holl depicts the plan for the Ningbo Fine Grain, a mixed use development that never came to fruition.

Founded in 2009 by Jonathan Kirschenfeld, AIA, the Institute for Public Architecture aims to promote designers working for public interest and urban betterment. One of the central topics the group explores is affordable housing, an increasingly urgent issue in urban zones.

Proceeds from an auction at the event will benefit the IPA; lots include an original watercolor drawing by Steven Holl, a handcolored lithograph of the Hearst Tower by Enoc Perez, and a two-week trip to a renovated Italian farmhouse.
