What happens when you combine a team of Central Florida architects, engineers, contractors and designers with about 3,000 canned goods? Canstruction® – an annual competition where teams design and build structures made entirely from canned foods … all within an 8’x8’x8’ space. The competition is sponsored by the American Institute of Architects Orlando and the Orlando Chapter of the Society for Design Administration.
Build day for Canstruction® takes place Sunday, October 20th at Orlando Fashion Square, and will remain on display through Saturday, October 26th. The exhibit will be located in the West Court, near the entrance of Panera and Sears
At the close of the exhibit, all of the food products used in the designs will be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida for distribution to pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, senior programs and low-income daycares.
Canstruction® is the most unique food charity in the world. Originally conceived by the Society for Design Administration, Canstruction® is a design/build competition held in cities throughout North America, Australia, and select cities throughout the world. Each year teams of architects and engineers compete to build unique sculptures made entirely out of canned foods. Last year, similar Canstruction® events were held in 75 cities across North America and the world; those events resulted in over 2.2 million pounds of food being donated to aid in the fight against world hunger.
