Imprint Lab‘s Architecture for Dogs crew recently returned from Japan and their photos of the installation and opening events are very cool. Doors opened on October 25 at Toto Gallery•Ma in Tokyo.

The display of species-specific doghouses curated by Kenya Hara had previously shown in Miami and Long Beach. The Asian debut included new pieces, including 12 explorations of Hara’s D-Tunnel concept.

The gallery also invites visitors to submit their own doghouse designs. The sketches, which are updated daily at architecturefordogs.com, are wonderful. So is the new book.

There was also talk at Design Hub in Tokyo Midtown, featuring Hara along with contributors Atelier Wan, Torafu Architects, Sou Fujimoto, and Elien Deceuninck of MVRDV.
