You’ve seen the cat. You’ve seen it so many times that you no longer really see the cat, unless it jumps out in front of your car and it’s suddenly staring stupidly at the speeding car and you curse out loud as you stomp unto the break.
But do we really see the cat?
A Workshop organized by Interruptions at Makan bringing together a multi-disciplinary design team to reform the city for cats as co-existing creatures who occupy our natural and built contexts. The participants dreamt up a hypothetical organized society of street cats, and attempted to redesign Paris Circle in Webdeh, Amman into a cat friendly urban environment which sought to create systems and structure to provide food, shelter, security and safety to the cat community.
