Who says a dollhouse has to be Victorian? If you are looking for a cool holiday gift to inspire a young future architect, we found some amazing examples at Brinca Dada. The above caught our attention for an obvious reason:
Inspired by the minimalist masterpieces of Paul Rudolph and Tadao Ando, the brinca dada Dylan Dollhouse House with Furniture features a concrete-and-glass feel, but with the breezy openness of a beachfront home. Floor-to-ceiling windows open to allow natural light into the house and play from many angles. The Dylan House has five living spaces on three levels: living room/dining room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and roof patio. The Dylan House Furniture set contains 23 pieces...enough to fill five living spaces on three levels: living room/dining room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and roof patio. Furnish their imagination with this awesome complete dollhouse and furniture set.
