Famous Architects Design Dollhouses – A exhibition to raise money for KIDS

Compass House by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris was been designed for children with visual impairment in mind, with a use of colour and texture to bring the house to life for them.

Some architects and designers have been working together. For what ? To raise money to a charity cause. They have been challenged to design a Dolls’ House in aid of charity KIDS.

“The project was inspired by the dolls’ house that Edwin Lutyens designed to showcase modern architecture for The British Empire Exhibition in 1922, and has been curated by Cathedral Group.” say Charity Choise Blog
