A fun, engaging, inspirational survey of more than 200 of the very best contemporary designs for pets in the same format as Mobitecture and Nanotecture.
"Pet architecture is to 21st-century designers what the chair was to their eminent predecessors: a peer-group challenge... Today's luminaries are doing goldfish gaffes and high-end hives. They seek to bring beauty into the everyday, while giving our animal housemates optimum living conditions... Robins can perch pretty on an egg-shaped bird-feeder, hens peck about in a coop that looks like it has flow out of the Conran shop,. Cats get the cream with a six-floor, carpeted tower block."―The Observer, Magazine
"Pet-tecture, a light-hearted (lightweight) little book traces graphics of cat paws and bird claw-prints through the pages, which are warmly penned by Tom Wainwright, filled with kennels, play-dens and cages of all stripes and sizes... This is a practical and aesthetic celebration of animal-human companionship, and its worth its weight in goldfish."―Wallpaper.com
About the Author
With two writers for parents, it was inevitable that London-based writer Tom Wainwright would take up a career in publishing. Tom began his career working on books at Miller's, before moving to Phaidon to work on various architecture and design titles. It was there that he developed a passion for design. Pet-tecture: Design for Pets combines two of his passions - design and animals of all kinds.
