20 Innovative Dollhouses for a Good Cause

Architect James Ramsey and artist Lara Apponyi’s dollhouse might not attract too much visual attention; it is void of color and has only one floor. But that’s because it’s not meant for someone who can see. It’s meant for a child who is blind.

Built from birch plywood, 3-D-printed coral, plastic, cork, cardboard, plaster and steel, this towering dollhouse is accompanied by a poem:

there's a place out there to the west of town
where nobody pushes no one around
a place where birds and fishes play
on a giant coral far away
where the sun is warm and the breeze is cool
and the sea is bluer than a swimming pool
you can play music and dance all day
on a giant coral far away
a house on a coral in the deep blue sea
a house on a coral in the deep blue sea
just imagine you could be
in the house on a coral in the deep blue sea
