Architect Barbie’s Dream House Finalists

The AIA received nearly 30 submissions for the AIA Barbie® Dream House™ Design Competition. The AIA and its panel of jurors have selected their finalists, with input from Mattel’s own team of Barbie® experts. Now it’s your turn to help select the winning design. While the submissions/winning design will not be produced by Mattel, it’s still a fun way to play and engage with Barbie® I Can Be™... Architect regardless of your age. dreamhouse I know that there was a lot of controversy when Mattel created the Architect Barbie, so what do you think of the competition? You can check out details here and vote for your favourite house.


  1. Meg, I wanted to be an architect when I was a kid. Didn't care much for Barbie, but my little sister did, so I'd design and build doll houses for her. Thanks for bringing back a nice memory.


  2. I happen to like Barbie. I think its silly that it became PC to dislike anything ultra feminine.

  3. Why can't Barbie be an architect???

  4. I picked the one with the giraffe outside the window. Anyone that can design a retro-50's house that attracts giraffes has GOT THE MAGIC.
