March has always been an exciting month for art lovers, with internationally famed events such as Art Basel, Art Central and Asia Contemporary Art Show happening. This weekend, your doggies are also invited to appreciate art and have some fun in “PAWS by the sea 2017” in Stanley Plaza. For the first time in Hong Kong, art exhibits are designed for your dogs. Here is what you can enjoy in this “PAWS by the sea” art event organised by Link.

2. “Architecture for Dogs” Exhibition (18-26 March)

This exhibition is organised under the direction of designer Mr Kenya Hara, art director of MUJI and key contributor of “Architecture for Dogs” project which is a collaboration between all-star architects, aiming to create architectural art pieces inspired by specific dog breeds, and welcoming anyone to download their blueprints available on its website and build-it-yourself . Some of the amazing works in “Architecture for Dogs” project.

PAPER PAPILLON: This piece created for Papillon by architect Shigeru Ban. With just two wires, the paper tube found inside the ubiquitous cylinder of plastic wrap changes shape, making a maze-like space for dogs.

MOUNT PUG: This is created for pug, perceived to be clever and mischievous, by architect Kengo Kuma. A mesh-shaped “mountain” is a nest and playground, made out of plywood pieces as branches without a nail or bond. Toys and snack can be hung on the mesh.
