Canstruction® is an extraordinary annual design competition and the most unique food charity in the world. Teams of architects, engineers, contractors, and the students they mentor compete to build large-scale structures made entirely out of unopened cans of food. The imaginative sculptures 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 79,000 pounds of food donated during last year’s competition.

Please note, elevators are only accessible via entrance at the corner of West Street and Vesey Street. The Winter Garden can also be entered from the Waterfront Plaza next to the Hudson River.  

The exhibition closes at 5pm on November 20th.

Past audience favorites will also be rebuilt and on display in the lobbies of 245 Park Avenue, Grace Building, and One Liberty Plaza.
