Barbie's New Dream House - Kinda

I wrote a while back that Matel has created Architect Barbie TM, an event about which, as a female architect, I have horrorif, um, complex reactions.

Well, the AIA (American Institute of Architects) held a design competition for a new Dream House TM.  The winning design is much more interesting spatially than the actual Matel Dream House TM and boasts solar panels, bamboo flooring, a home office, a meditation room... and pink.  Lotso #$%# pink.

Read a good article on this competition at Fast Company.  This is, BTW, a great site on buisness and design.
