The Giant Dolls’House con­sist­ed of 150 shoe­box-rooms. Ropes, ramps and lad­ders between all box­es con­nect­ed them. The dolls’ house thus becomes one sprawl­ing series of spaces one can imag­ine wan­der­ing through.
The dolls’ house is a fan­tas­tic medi­um to explore domes­tic and com­mu­ni­ty space for chil­dren and adults alike through its three dimen­sion­al­i­ty, recog­nis­abil­i­ty and appeal to the imag­i­na­tion. The dolls’ house we have found dur­ing this process is a top­ic every per­son has an opin­ion on.
This project high­lights the impor­tance of a home for all and we there­fore asked each par­tic­i­pant to con­tribute one pound to the hous­ing char­i­ty Shelter.
