Brookfield Place World Financial Center Complex
Free but bring a can of high quality food for fundraiser
Canstruction is an annual design competition and the most unique food charity in the world. This February, Canstruction celebrates its 20th anniversary of competition in New York City, which was postponed from November 2012 due to Hurricane Sandy.
Twenty-five 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 to reach the goal of collecting over 50,000 pounds of non-perishable edibles.
Address: 200 Vessery St. Financial District, NY 10285
