The other day we stumbled upon a building in Osaka that was shaped like a dachshund. As it turns out, it was a warehouse and distribution center for the Japanese pet food company DoggyMan, which made sense; what you see is what you get.

I find that this kind of buildings are less common in Japan, but when you find one it usually looks good. I like the DoggyMan warehouse, simple and brilliant!

I always loved this about some Japanese architects. I know they don't do this for everything but it is such a beautiful and artistic expression. I wish they did that more and here in the US.
