According to Dezeen, each designer was asked to create a structure that would alter the way people interact with their pet. The project’s website is due to go live on November 15th and will include downloadable templates for each design so dog owners can build them at home. The site will also feature instructions and videos, and people will be able to upload photos of their creations. Click through to see a selection of the dog-friendly structures:
