Canstruction

Date: May 14, 2019 - May 17, 2019
Location: Toronto Dominion Centre - Map

Canstruction is an international annual design and build competition to raise awareness about the growing hunger gap. Teams of architects, engineers, designers and students design and build ‘Canstructures’, structures made entirely from canned foods within a 10’x10’x8’ space. Teams compete for the titles: Best Design, Best Use of Labels, Best Meal, Structural Ingenuity, and People’s Choice.

After the competition and exhibition, the structures are deconstructed and all of the cans are donated to Daily Bread Food Bank. Last year Canstruction teams donated 52,165 pounds of non perishable food items through the course of the springtime competition.
