A group of renowned artists, designers, and architects including Ivan Djidev, Zaha Hadid, Condy Lofthouse Architects, TLA Studio and Spark Architects have designed one-off doghouses that are currently being displayed across London as a part of BowWow Haus London exhibition. About 65 canine shelters are on show until April 26, 2018.
After five weeks of the public show, all of them will be sold off through a charity auction or via online bids, with proceeds to be donated to the pet charity Blue Cross.
