MU Students Design, Build Sustainable Dog House for Humane Society
Several University of Missouri tigers are lending their paws to help out some four legged friends live in style and support the Central Missouri Humane Society (CMHS). Architecture and interior design students from the MU College of Human Environmental Sciences have put their creative skills to the test by designing and building a unique dog house out of sustainable materials. The students, who all volunteered for the project outside of class work, entered their dog house into the “Mid-Missouri Barkitecture” contest, along with more than 10 entries from community organizations and professional architecture firms. The houses were judged and several awards given. The MU students won the Dog’s Choice award.
The houses were then auctioned off to the highest bidders and all proceeds were donated to the CMHS.Posted on Apr 11, 2011.
