canstruction Calling all Food Can Enthusiasts!

Canstruction is coming to New Jersey — October 2009!

A community driven event, this international competition allows architects, students, engineers and designers to design and build gi-normous structures made entirely from full food cans which, after the event, are donated to charity. Last year, in New Jersey, more than 40,000 pounds of canned food and $6,426 in cash were donated. The call for entries can be found on the AIA New Jersey’s website.

Now – in thinking about your design, there is a lot that needs to be considered aside from the actual structure… theme, label colors… and of course, Campbells vs. ProgressoSoup wars – do you MSG or not!
