The Pup Tent (21"x36") is an exploration in materials, designed and fabricated for the Design Trust for Public Spaces Annual Auction. The goal was to create a "Nest" -- something that could support residence for a creature and also fit in a taxi.
Our design is for a modern, indoor dog lounge. A single sheet of 4' x 8' water-jet cut plywood was laminated to create a conical shape. A surface pattern is created as the planar plies of the wood intersect with the conical geometry of the surface. The design is sustainable as well, since the opening in the top promotes natural ventilation using the stack effect and natural lighting.
