Canstruction® is an extraordinary annual design competition and the most unique food charity in the world. This year, you can join Canstruction® in celebrating its monumental 20th anniversary of charitable work in New York City! Over 25 teams of architects, engineers, contractors, and the students they mentor will compete to build enormous structures made entirely out of unopened cans of food, which are then on view to the public until they are dismantled and donated to City Harvest for distribution to those in need. Admission is free, but visitors are asked to bring a can of high quality food to the exhibition’s collection station in an attempt to surpass the exhibition’s donation of over 50,000 pounds of non-perishable edibles!
