For Cathedral Group’s charity project, A Dolls’ House, 20 United Kingdom architects and designers designed a doll house in order to raise £100,000 for the children’s charity, KIDS. Duggan Morris Architects, Dexter Moren, DRDH Architects, Glenn Howells Architects, HLM Architects, Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, mae, RAAD Studio, shedkm, FAT, dRMM, Make Architects, and Allford Hall Monaghan Morris are among the contributors to this project. Inspired by the over 1,500 artists who participated in Edwin Lutyens’ 1924 doll house for Queen Mary, Cathedral Group organized their own doll house project. Each doll house has to be constructed on a 750 square millimeter plith and include one feature that could make life easier for a child with special needs.
As expected, the designs run the gamut in terms of aesthetics; some of the house designs are serious and practical, while others are abstract and absurd. The doll houses were on exhibit during the London Design Festival last month and will be auctioned off in November at Bonham’s in London. (via de zeen)
