Canstruction brings together architects, engineers and contractors to design and build massive, sculptural structures from various canned goods. After the event, the cans are donated to local food banks for distribution to those in need. Leading to the donation of over 15 million pounds of food, the event has been held in many cities throughout the country, from Boston to Los Angeles and from Chicago to Austin. This June 22-26th, the Metreon will host the first annual event in San Francisco.
Feldman Architecture is excited to be paired with Fulcrum Structural Engineering for this year’s event. The request of the San Francisco Food Bank is to provide canned goods high in protein, while organizers have asked teams to dream big about the Spirit of San Francisco. Our team has been working for the past 4 weeks, drawing up a 3d Model, working on a method of canstruction, and looking for donations. We’ll post more soon, but in the meantime, if you’d like to help us in gathering cans, please email one of us directly or visit here for further information about donations. – Hannah and the Canstruction team
