There isn´t any Industrial Designer Barbie… yet ! But we will keep waiting for her. For now, we can all be happy with Architect Barbie :
It even comes with her lovely thick black glasses, blue prints and a little scale model of her (dream?) house.
The AIA (American Institute of Architects ) and Mattel held a design competition for the architect Barbie, the newest addition to the career-themed “I Can Be” series. The winner of this Design competition designed a lovely, pink, modern, glass filled and glamorous barbie eco-friendly House : “The four-story Malibu beach house features luxurious open chef’s kitchen, fitness room, and landscaped garden on the rooftop as well as green-lifestyle touches—sourced furniture, solar panels, bamboo flooring, and low flow toilets—throughout the 4,881 square feet. But the fashion-loving doll’s favorite part would be the computerized glass tower closet that runs through all floors” Read more in this Article of Times online magazine.
Nobody will built this house unless you want to buy the blueprints and do it yourself. Anyhow , we will wait for that to hapen too. 😉
Remember that this week´s Design Challenge theme is Barbie, wait for the results next Monday and tell us what you think.
