Dogchitecture: Mexican Designers Create Amazing Architectural Homes For Dogs

Last year MUJI's director Kenya Hara invited some of the world's top architects - including Shigeru Ban and MVRDV -- to design adorable Architecture For Dogs with free downloadable instructions. Inspired by this concept, architect Esteban Suarez (of BNKR) join up with Felipe Fadón (of Nuugi) to curate a wonderful exhibition of dog dwellings by young Mexican designers. Read on to check out Dogchitecture´s varied designs for making dogs (and their best friends) happy.
Dogchitecture  showcases an amazing array of canine -friendly shelters. Specially created for the exhibition, the tiny houses were envisioned by cutting edge Mexican studios including Productora , Rojkind Arquitectos , BNKR  and A-001 . Far from the average wooden or plastic shelters stocked by pet shops, these wonderful creations were custom-made for different breeds  out of assorted materials.
The projects range from flat-pack , recycled and origami-inspired designs to sculptural shelters that integrate plants. Mexico´s first canine architecture show is currently on display at DF´s Polyforum Siqueiros  and it will tour around the country soon.
We’re happy to see designers working to make animals happier – now we’d like to see some Catchitecture please!
