Japan House London: Architecture for Dogs

19.09.2020 →
Featuring a collection of architectural designs for dogs by world-class architects and designers, the internationally acclaimed 'Architecture for Dogs' makes its European debut at Japan House London from 19 September with the addition of a new piece by an eminent UK architect (to be announced soon). Far from being just an exhibition, this open-source network allows guests to become designers and makers themselves, with blueprints available for download and opportunities to design one's own architecture for dogs. A series of virtual experiences is also on offer, including a 3D Tour, online talks and ‘live’ guided tours. 'Architecture for Dogs', was devised by Hara Kenya, President of the Nippon Design Center and Japan House Chief Creative Advisor. It features the works of celebrated architects and designers including Shigeru Ban, Kengo Kuma, Toyō Itō, Sou Fujimoto, Atelier Bow-Wow and MA Yang Song amongst others. Each of the works offers guests a light-hearted and insightful exploration into architecture and design that can be joyful for both dogs and their human companions. The specially made architectural pieces are all designed with a different dog breed in mind, including the Beagle, Bichon Frise, Shiba Inu, Boston Terrier and Poodle. Look out for further news of exciting opportunities for smaller dogs to interact with some of the pieces.
