Relive Childhood Memories with these Architectural Playhouses

Ok, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Farnsworth House by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. It was the first work or architecture that I truly fell in love with when I started studying architecture in my sophomore year of high school — waaaaay back in 2000; man what a year. Well, if only when I was 5 years old — waaaaay back in 1990; what what a year THAT was — when I decided to seriously thought about studying architecture…said NOT ME at the age of 5! Anyway, this is NOT the Farnsworth House; it is “Illinois House” model from SmartPlayhouses, and these things are prime in giving younger children an appreciation of architecture early on.  

The playhouses come in both indoor and outdoor varieties. Some other models include and range from the Kyoto House, inspired by the avant-garde Japanese style, the Scandinavian-inspired Hobikken playhouse,  and the steel-clad with printed leaves Casaforum model.  So if you want on for your kids (or the kid inside of you), I hope you’re ready to fork over at least $5,000 for one.  Or, you can just buy your children some architecture picture book.  There’s no ONE way to foster interest in architecture.
