Marley Eternit sponsor A Dolls' House
Marley Eternit is pleased to announce that it will be sponsoring A Dolls’ House, a fundraising event organised by the Cathedral Group on behalf of KIDS, a UK charity supporting disabled children.
Inspired by Edwin Lutyens’ iconic dolls’ house which featured in The British Empire Exhibition at Wembley in 1922, 19 contemporary architects and designers have been challenged to design and build a dolls’ house for the 21st Century. The dolls’ houses need to include at least one feature that makes life easier for a child living with a disability. Participants include Zaha Hadid, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, David Adjaye, Amanda Levete, Make, FAT Architecture, Glenn Howells, dRMM, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris and Studio Egret West, among others.
The event will be formally launched with a preview exhibition at Domus’ West End showroom, with a number of doll's houses on display for the duration of the London Design Festival between 14th and 22nd September. The dolls’ houses will then be auctioned at a high profile evening at Bonhams’ in November.
