Japanese designer Kenya Hara has developed a projected called Architecture for Dogs, a curated collection of stylized houses and beds for man’s best friend. Hara assembled a group of 11 architects who each chose a breed group and designed a place of leisure inspired by that breed’s character. The Jack Russel on a t-shirt hammock, the Poodle in a beauty mirror and the Dachshund at a ramped elevation were each contributed by a recognized architect. It’s a playful series, and while it may be more experimental than functional, it will continue to grow as fans become involved. Kenya Hara will be launching a website at ArchitectureForDogs.com where visitors can download blue prints and even contribute some of their own.
