Inspired by the Architecture for Dogs exhibition at Japan House London, London’s prestigious Architectural Association School of Architecture hosts ‘A Playground for Non-Humans’: a week of installations and events in association with Japan House London at Bedford Square.
Installations include the Architecture for Dogs Roadshow: an interactive display of four pieces from the Architecture for Dogs exhibition created by the world-renowned architects and designers Atelier Bow Wow, Kuma Kengo, MVRDV and Hara Kenya.
Accompanying the Roadshow is a selection of new works specially created by Architectural Association School of Architecture members as part of the school’s ‘Architecture for Non-Humans Design Competition’. Developed in response to Architecture for Dogs, the competition and resulting exhibition, supported by Maeda Corporation, examine the importance of non-human inhabitation in its various and diverse forms across the city environment and seek to trigger a discussion around alternative models of urban living that embrace today’s challenges.
A round table discussion and a programme of events in collaboration with AA LAWuN (Locally Available World Unseen Networks) around the theme of Architecture for Non-Humans runs concurrently to the installations. Visit the website for further details
