Fifth Annual
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 14, 2016
6:00–8:00 p.m.
Steelcase Showroom, 4 Columbus Circle, New York, NY 10019
 
For the estimated tens of thousands of cats who live in backyards, vacant lots, alleys, and numerous other outdoor locations throughout our city, wintertime is especially difficult. Many of these cats are cared for by dedicated caretakers who feed them daily, monitor their health, and go to great lengths to have them spayed or neutered through Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). TNR has proved to be the only truly humane and effective way to manage feral and stray community cat colonies and reduce their numbers over time.
 
For the past five years, some of New York's most respected architects and designers, through an inventive project called Architects for Animals, have been helping our city's kitties by creating imaginative winter shelters to provide them with a refuge from the cold. We are delighted once again to present at this event a new collection of unique, inspired Architects for Animals winter shelters for public viewing before they are donated to Certified TNR Caretakers and placed in locations throughout the city.
 
Among the architectural firms and individuals participating in this year's exhibition are Biber Architects, deSoto studio Architects, HLW International, ModUS : ØP C(r)it, Narofsky Architecture, Prudon & Partners with Docomomo US, santilli | farrell, and Spacesmith.
 
Admission is a $25 donation ($10 for Certified TNR Caretakers) and includes the exhibit, hors d'oeuvres, and cocktails. You may RSVP in advance online through January 12, and tickets also will be available at the door. No paper tickets will be issued; your name will be on the list at the door.
