FootsDog aims to present a high degree of togetherness in the Wai Chai’s community and interconnecting puppy and human. This project includes a social engagement phrase.

Residents nearby used to walk their pets along Lee Tung Avenue. They love animals and always start a conversation about pets with us easily during the engagement. Therefore, this becomes the key factor of building up connections. By understanding the relationship between public seats and users, we realise the inconvenience and problems of the public facility brought by the pet park. We come with a design that is flexible enough which enhances interactions among pets, owners and neighbourhoods.

We hope to achieve a pet-friendly community. The prototype initiated with 3 small seating components. Then we used those 3 components to assemble a larger seating by using different methodologies such as stacking, juxtaposing etc. Furthermore, we used local recycled acacia confusa for the final production which is placed along Lee Tung Avenue right now.
