Inspired by the doll houses that Edwin Lutyens designed for The British Empire Exhibition in 1922, 20 British practices are each designing a contemporary doll house in aid of the disabled childrens’ charity KIDS.

Each version will sit on a 750mm square plinth to be auctioned at Bonham's on November 11, 2013 and contains at least one feature intended to make life easier for a disabled child. Among the participating practices are Zaha Hadid Architects and Rogers Stirk Harbour + PartnersFAT will also be working with Turner Prize recipient Grayson Perry CBE, and Studio Egret West with artist Andrew Logan.
