Canstruction® is an annual design competition and food charity in New York City. Over 25 teams of architects, engineers and contractors compete to build enormous structures made entirely out of unopened cans of food. They are then on view to the public until dismantled and donated to City Harvest. Admission is free, but visitors are asked to bring a can of high quality food.

If you’re in the NYC area, check out the exhibit November 2 – 14 at the World Financial Center Complex.
