We love… Architect Designed Dolls’ Houses

Some of the world’s most renowned architects recently designed and built a dolls’ house, to raise money and awareness for children’s charity, KIDS.

While whimsical in their design and construction, each house was actually designed to incorporate an innovative feature that could assist a child with disabilities. Architects involved in the project included dRMMMake Architects, Zaha Hadid, David Adjaye and FAT, who worked with loveable artist Grayson Perry to create the interior and exterior details of a “Trellick Tower-inspired” house (Erno Goldfinger’s iconic, Grade II listed block of flats in West London.)

The initiative was curated by Cathedral Group Plc, and although for a very different cause, it reminds us of the whimsical Architecture for Dogs project by MUJI’s creative director, Kenya Hara – reported on last year.
