The Cat Bowl, a shelter for stray cats wins people choice award

Dr.Pallvika Kashiv

Architects for Animals: Giving Shelter, in order raise money for FixNation has brought together 12 renowned architecture firms to create unique shelter for outdoor and stray cats. FixNation, which is a non-profit charity that aims to reduce the homeless cat population in Los Angeles by spaying and neutering them, aims to lift the financial burden from caregivers.

Showcasing some of the quirkiest and unique designs, each cat shelter was put on display for public voting. All shelters with varying construction, displayed how different elements can be used to create shelter for furry friends. Where some designers opted for condo-like shape with huge spaces, others opted for elements like built-in scratchpads, faux grass, etc.

At the event in Herman Miller Showroom, The Cat Bowl by Abramson Teiger Architects was adjudged the fan favorite design. Inspired by the Chinese yin-yang symbol, the cat shelter supports multi-layering of wood that allow cats an easy view of the outside world.

The event was considered a success by Co-founder and Executive Director of FixNation, Karn Myers. Here are the 12 designs imagined by Los Angeles-based architecture firms.
