Description: Canstruction is an international charity competition where architects, engineers, contractors, and students compete to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food. More than 20 entries vie for awards in categories like Best Meal, Best Use of Labels, and Structural Ingenuity. In the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, these sculptural works are on view throughout the World Financial Center. At the close of the exhibition, the sculptures will be dismantled and donated to City Harvest.
