Villa Pup

Tags: , ,

Our first commission and mascot project, Villa Pup is a doghouse for the urban dog. Incorporating a treadmill, video screens, and an odor machine, Villa Pup allows urban dogs a virtual rural life while cooped up all day in an apartment. They can chase butterflies or cars, spend a day at the beach or even increase self confidence by racing greyhounds.

The project is the first in a long line of explorations into the relationships between nature and artifice, the rural and the urban, technology and experience.
