Cat Shelter by Chava Danielson/DSH // architecture

Cat shelter

Excerpt:

In the Fall of 2015 I applied for a Faculty Development Grant to purchase a LulzBot TAZ5 3D desktop printer. The particular printer would allow my office to undertake the proposed research in that it has a large print bed, interchangeable tool heads able to accept a variety of new materials such as translucent plastics and runs on open source software. The printer would be used to produce a full-scale cat shelter exhibited by Architects for Animals at the Herman Miller Showroom and auctioned off to benefit a non-profit dedicated to helping spay, neuter and find homes for homeless cats, Fix Nation.
