Friday Funny: 14 Designer Pooch Palaces

With 14 examples of pup houses designed by famous architects such as MVRDV, Toyo Ito, and, of course, Atelier Bow-Wow, Web Urbanist shows that avant garde architecture is, most definitely, for the dogs.

Now showing in the Miami Design District, Architecture for Dogs is "an extremely sincere collection of architecture and a new medium, which make dogs and their people happy." Hmm, well we're not quite sure what that means but, yes, looking at Hiroshi Yoda's photographs of the designer dog houses in action certainly puts a smile on our faces.

Each of the pooch palaces, designed by such notable names as Shigeru Ban, Reiser + Unemoto, and Kazuyo Sejima of SANAA, comes with its own manifesto, free downloadable blueprints, and an instructional video.
