Architects for Animals: Giving Shelter

Every year since 2010, some of New York's most respected architects and designers, through an inventive project called Architects for Animals, have been helping our city's feral and stray community kitties by creating imaginative winter shelters to provide them with a refuge from the cold. We are delighted to present these collections of unique, inspired winter shelters for public viewing at the Architects for Animals: Giving Shelter exhibit before they are placed in locations throughout the city to provide comfort for the cats. This annual exhibition benefits the New York City Feral Cat Initiative of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals

Fifth Annual Architects for Animals: Giving Shelter

Thursday, January 14, 2016

6:00–8:00 p.m.

Steelcase Showroom, 4 Columbus Circle, Manhattan

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 feral and stray community 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, 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 drinks. You may RSVP in advance online through January 12, and tickets also will be available at the door.
