Property developer Cathedral Group enlisted twenty famous architects and designers including Zaha Hadid to construct doll houses. On November 11th, they will present their designs in an exhibition and auction at Bonhams in aid of KIDS, a UK charity supporting disabled children, young people and their families.

Cathedral Group have pledged to raise £100,000 for KIDS to support their valuable work. The inspiration behind the project is the dolls’ house that Edwin Lutyens designed for The British Empire Exhibition at Wembley in 1922.

Participating architects and designers include Adjaye Associates, AMODELS, Coffey Architects, Dexter Moren, FAT Architecture, Guy Hollaway Architects, HLM Architects, Make Architects, Studio Egret West and Zaha Hadid Architects. Click through to see a selection of the dolls’ houses:
