Designing for Non-Humans


AA Designing for Non Humans 1000x543

As part of a programme of online events and installations inspired by the Architecture for Dogs exhibition, London’s prestigious Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA) hosts a round table discussion exploring what it means to design cities for all species to enjoy.

During the event, the winners of the school’s ‘Architecture for Non-Humans Design Competition’, developed in response to Architecture for Dogs , are joined in conversation with architects who contributed designs to the Architecture for Dogs exhibition currently on display at Japan House London, as well as architect and AA Council Vice President Catherine du Toit and critical designer and AA graduate Ioana Man to discuss what it means to design for non-humans and how a wilder ecology within urban environments can be encouraged.

Panellists include Ito Toyo (Toyo Ito & Associates), Tsukamoto Yoshiharu (Atelier Bow-Wow), Catherine du Toit, Ioana Man and Camille Bongard, Matis Barollier and Cesar Jucker (SQUI 2). The discussion is chaired by Egashira Shin.
