Architecture loving parents can start their kids on the road to appreciation by nabbing one of the beautifully designed masterpieces. The auction will be live until noon UK time November 11th, giving admirers plenty of time to hum and haw over their favorite designs. The highest bidders of each design will also be invited to a special event on the final evening of the auction at Bonhams.

The custom designed doll houses range from fantastical to modern, highlighting each of the designers’ signature styles. Amodels’ entry is a sculpture tree house, with a network of ladders, slides and pulleys leading up to an airplane repurposed as the mainhouse. A geomertic wood and crystalline rectangular house by Zaha Hadid is set on a carved wooden plane, in true Hadid style. Young Architect of the Year in 2012 Coffey Architects’s house is a low energy concrete plan, complete with grassy yard.

The sale of each of the innovative doll houses will directly benefit KIDS, a charity that empowers mentally and physically disabled children.
