2021 Pet Habitat Competition

Pets make an impact on families and lifestyle. They deserve a space just for them.

The AIA Connecticut Allied Advisory Knowledge Community has put together Blueprints for Pawprints, a
Pet Habitat Competition for 2021. Besides creating these blueprints and schematic drawings, we are working with
Canine Companions for Independence to help sponsor and promote their program.

Submit your pet habitat schematic drawing!

-Your design may be hand drawn or computerized, but it must be able to be published for the average pet owner to build. You will be asked to submit a list of materials with your design.

-Your design should be constructible and affordable, and should consider current trends, sophistication, and playfulness. *Bonus if your design includes mindful materials and/or a sustainable aspect!

-The top 3 submission will receive prizes. All submissions and winners will be showcased at the 2021 Connecticut Architecture Conference and Expo in October!
