Architectural Doghouses Revamp The Traditional Structure
The age-old home for pups get redesigned for the discerning pet.
Who said architecture was something only to be admired by humans? There seems to be have been recent movements in the world of doghouse design towards something more aesthetically pleasing.
A new exhibition Dogchitecture aims to make the world of doghouses a little bit more exciting through architectural design, resulting in happier pets, and happier owners.
This particular exhibit was Inspired by a similar project called “Architecture For Dogs“. A project created by Japan’s Kenya Hara in order to offer up a series of blueprints that could be created at home by dog owners around the world.
10 Mexican offices took part in the initiative, including: BNKR Arquitectura, Rojkind Arquitectos, Broissin, PRODUCTORA, a-001, Taller 13, PMS Arch Buro, ROW Studio, Laboratorio Arquitectura Básica y ESOS.
Polyforum Siqueiros, in Mexico City, will be the home of Dogchitecture until August 18th, 2013. After that, it will travel to other important museums around Mexico.
For anyone who is intrigued by this particular form of architecture, keep your eyes out for a book about the exhibit that is likely to be made later this year. It will feature photographs and descriptions of the various dog-based projects.
