Architecture for Dogs is a collection of kennels and accessories for canines that are designed by many different architects, most of them Japanese. It is “a new medium, which makes dogs and their people happy” and features unique designs, all of which can be made at home. So if you’re looking for a dog stroller, Chihuahua bubble suit, or a cone that sits on top of your dog instead of going around his neck, you can check out all that and more in Tokyo this fall.

The gallery is open from October 25 to December 21 at TOTO Gallery Ma in Tokyo’s Minato Ward. It will be open from 11AM until 6PM and will be closed on Sundays, Mondays, and national holidays. Let’s take a look at some of the interesting and bizarre designs that will be on display.

Since the blueprints for each design are provided for free online at the Architecture for Dogs official website, anyone (with a high-level of crafting skills) can have a crazy dog house for their precious pooch. Just be sure to use some breathable fabric if you choose to make the Chihuahua Cloud…since it’s essentially a bag over your tiny dog’s head, the results could be disastrous if made incorrectly.
