Canstruction: Fads Through the Ages

Watch architects, engineers, artisans, and students compete to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food in the Adams Atrium. After the sculptures are built and winners are declared in several categories, the sculptures remain on display to the general public for two weeks. At the close of the competition, all of the food is donated to Foodlink.

Canstruction® is a unique nonprofit organization that holds annual design-build competitions to build giant sculptures made from canned food.
