Zaha Hadid dolls house

Dolls house in wood and perspex designed by Zaha Hadid.

“The miniature dwelling has been conceived as a series of six interlocking elements, serving as a puzzle which can be reconfigured into an endless variety of compositions / living quarters–each of the individual components indicative of a room, that when stacked together, form a unified home. when assembled, the design features a continuous void that creates communal areas / courtyards shared by every element, thus defining circulation between the ever-changing programs. with endless possibilities of experimentation and arrangement–the pieces can also be rotated to match their shapes found within the garden of the dolls’ house–the project encourages an ongoing evaluation of architectural composition and form.”
