Architects for Animals: Giving Shelter
An evening to benefit the NYC Feral Cat Initiative of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals
Thursday, January 10, 2013
Steelcase Showroom, 4 Columbus Circle, New York, NY 10019
According to estimates, there are as many as a million homeless animals — predominantly cats — living on the streets of New York. The winter months are particularly difficult for these populations. In response, New York's best architects are stepping up to help.
Since cats need winter shelters, who better to design and build them than NYC's architectural community? The participating firms will build and donate creative outdoor winter shelters to help city kitties escape freezing temperatures. These small shelters will be on display for the public at the event, and attendees will vote on their favorites. At the end of the evening, the shelters will be donated to community cat caretakers around the city.
This year's participating architectural teams include industry giants H3 Hardy Collaborative Architecture; Francis Cauffman Architects; M Moser Associates; Callison Barteluce; Stonehill & Taylor Architects, with a team of students from City College; Zimmerman Workshop; Kathryn Walton of The American Street Cat (TASC); and Pilot Projects Design Collective, to name a few.
Admission is a $20 donation ($10 for Certified TNR Caretakers) and includes the exhibit, hors d'oeuvres, and drinks.
