Architecture presents for the kids.

Careful what you get ’em!

Although we lived in an ‘English Tudor’ house,
my parents got me

Ah, I can still see them now! I built towers in the basement. Thanks Mom and Dad! And now I live in

860 – 880 by Mies.

We know that Frank Lloyd Wright’s mother gave him

Froebel blocks.

He went on to design

So here’s what I want to know. Which architect’s Mom and Dad gave them


Nouvel? Gehry? Hejduk?

Happy Holidays,
