Results MNC-3 (INHABIT)

Micro Nation just announced the results of Micro Nation Challenge – 3 (INHABIT). 

Challenge is to design a small living unit for stray animals (dogs, cats, cows etc.)  at street level, where there is facility of dumping your leftovers and vegetable peels for stray animals. There was a lot of interesting projects submitted.

Below we present all winning entries:

1st Prize

Project by: MD. Faizan Sharief 
 Eluru, India

The winning entry made sure to keep every aspect in mind. The fact that stray animals are not used to living in enclosed spaces, the shed is provided. The shed design also makes cleaning of the space easier. Being foldable in nature, the shed can be operated my humans with respect to the climate. 

  • The cost of its installment is very minimal.
  • This shed can be installed in all the negative spaces we see in our surroundings and hence those spaces can be used.
  • The presentation is very professional and every detail is mentioned properly. 

Indeed this is a very good work and deserves appreciation.



1st Runner Up

Project by: Dhruv Shah 
 Vadodara, India

The concept of shed is again used and in a very effective way. Stray animals do not need a home to stay in, they just need a space to rest and get some food and water. They cannot be caged and must not be.
The participant has proposed a flexible module which can be modified according to the requirement. The disposal to food for them is very easy in this arrangement. Also the cleaning is easy. Hence no extra efforts would be needed my the people of the society.

Great Job !


2nd Runner Up

Project by: Tasha Akemah 
 Savannah, USA

The proposed design is very basic and yet it fulfills every requirement. The units can be placed form place to place. And does not look like a disgrace on the city. They are more like a frame into other species’ lives.

Very well illustrated.

  1. Do you really think these structures having same places for dogs and cats will work in real life? Street Dogs will 100 percent kill cats .

    1. We weren’t making a permanent home for stray animals. It was about giving them shelter and food whenever they needed. Cats and dogs, by nature, don’t live with each other. Hence the module is supposed to be used by these animals, whenever needed. It was not about taming stray animals.
