What happens when you combine a team of Central Florida architects, engineers, contractors and designers with about 1,500 canned goods? Canstruction – an annual competition where teams design and build structures made entirely from canned foods … all within an 8’x8’x8’ space. The competition will be sponsored by the American Institute of Architects Orlando and the Orlando Chapter of the Society of Design Administration
Orlando Fashion Square mall will house the exhibit from October 16 to October 23. On October 16, unique “Wonders of the World” will be on display, as well as, 8 school teams whose structures will reflect their school spirit. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
At the close of the exhibit, all of the food products used in the designs will be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida for distribution to pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, senior programs and low-income daycares.
