Virtual Giant Dolls’ House 2021

For more than a year millions of people all over the world still have had their lives and movements restricted or changed by the coronavirus pandemic. Everyone has been impacted in some way and many have had to reacquaint themselves with their home environment. At the same time people everywhere show care and compassion – they reach out to support others to show that we are never alone. However, 79.5 million refugees around the world have no freedom of movement and access to their communities. Many live under dire circumstances.

For this 2021 vir­tu­al dolls’ house project, in solidarity with 79.5 million refugees, we asked par­tic­i­pants, chil­dren of all ages, to make a dolls’ house in a shoe­box of their per­son­al expe­ri­ences of the past year or hopes and dreams for the future to show that together, we care. We are now accepting entries for another Virtual Giant Dolls’ House as part of Refugee Week 2021, London Festival of Architecture 2021 in collaboration with Oxfam Education. You can no longer send your house.
