Architecture for Dogs

Architecture for Dogs Roadshow

Inspired by the Architecture for Dogs exhibition at Japan House London , an interactive display of architectural pieces designed for dogs by world-class architects and designers is once again touring some of London’s most popular dog-walking sites this summer!

For one August weekend, Pitzhanger hosts this returning display in its garden, accessible from Walpole Park and Ealing Green. The exhibits will be available for well-behaved dogs to interact with.

Once you’ve enjoyed the architecture exhibit why not pop into Pitzhanger and see our Rana Begum: Dappled Light exhibition or enjoy our drop-in creative activities for families?

SPECIAL OFFER: get a half price hot drink (or iced coffee) when you buy your dog a tub of Jude’s doggy ice cream from Pitzhanger Pantry all weekend. Just quote ‘Architecture for Dogs’ at the till to redeem your offer.

Exhibits featured at the Roadshow

Each architectural piece is designed with a different dog breed in mind and offers a playful and insightful exploration into architecture and design that can be joyful for both dogs and their human companions.

The exhibits available are as follows:

Mount Pug: An imaginative nest and playground for a pug created by internationally renowned Japanese architect Kuma Kengo; its organic structure is sturdy, despite being made without a single nail.

D-Tunnel: Designed for a teacup poodle by exhibition director and Japan House Creative Advisor Hara Kenya this piece with an embedded staircase helps small dogs and their human companions to see each other eye to eye.

Beagle House – Interactive Dog House: A playful take on a classic kennel designed by Rotterdam-based architectural firm MVRDV for a beagle; its curved gently rocking frame provides a stimulating environment for the intelligent dog.

Architecture for Long-Bodied-Short-Legged Dog: Designed by Tokyo-based practice Atelier Bow-Wow for a dachshund, the sloped structure allows the short-legged dog to climb the frame with ease, while the piece’s length enables the owner to lie down next to their dog.
