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 with the addition of a brand new piece by eminent UK architect, Asif Khan.

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 (available later in the autumn), online talks and ‘live’ guided tours.

'Architecture for Dogs', was devised by Hara Kenya, President of the Nippon Design Center and Japan House Creative Advisor. It features the works of celebrated architects and designers including Ban Shigeru, Kuma Kengo, Itō Toyō, Sou Fujimoto, Atelier Bow-Wow and Ma Yansong amongst others. The addition of Asif Khan's piece creates a lasting link between the exhibition and the architectural scene in London. 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 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.
