dog house


Each year, Austin does an event that combines two of my favorite things in life: architecture/design + dogs. It’s a called Barkitecture, and local builders and design/architecture firms create little home’s for man’s best friend to raise awareness and money for local animal shelters. Truly there are some amazing, one of a kind creations! Submissions are judged by a panel and prizes are awarded for categories such as Most Unusual and Best in Show. Take a peek at some of the interesting buildings and contest winners from 2012:
