Through selections from the CCA’s collection of architectural toys and games, including 33 European and North American architectural toys dating from the early nineteenth century to 1995, Dream Houses, Toy Homes examines the notions of home, childhood, play, gender, and learning. The exhibition uncovers the potential of toys to embody images and ideas of domestic architecture and family life and their evolution over time.
Dream Houses, Toy Homes is the fifth in a series of exhibitions featuring the CCA’s collection of architectural toys and games, acquired with the support of Bell Canada.
Curated by Alice T. Friedman, Wellesley College.
