CANstruction combines the competitive spirit of a design/build competition with a unique way to help feed hungry people. Competing teams, led by architects, showcase their talents by designing sculptures made entirely out of canned foods. At the close of the exhibitions all of the food used in the structures is donated to Second Harvest Food Bank. 

A distinguished jury will select and award teams for the following categories: 
Best Meal, Structural Ingenuity, Best Use of Labels, and People's Choice.
Registration Fee: $150 per team | FREE entry for student teams. Limit 5 people per team. Fee includes CANstruction t-shirts for team members.


Deadline to register: Saturday, March 26, 2016

Build Day: Saturday, April 16, 2016 at Charlotte Convention Center.
