Kenya Hara: Architecture for Dogs

Kenya Hara's "Architecture for Dogs" is a series of structures built for man's best friend based on the philosophy of DIY. Hara commissioned breed-specific constructions from some of the biggest names in Japanese architecture, including Shigeru Ban (papillon), Konstantin Grcic (toy poodle), Atelier Bow-Wow (smooth-haired dachshund) and Kazuyo Sejima of SANAA (bichon frisé). The easy-to-assemble structures will allow owners to see eye to eye with their canine companions — literally. Via the NYT, "Through the Web site which goes live this month, dog owners will be able to download free blueprints of each structure, along with directions and how-to-build videos that allow customization."
