Canstruction Dazzles NYC

November 29, 2010

Over 100,000 full cans of food were transformed into epic eye candy when they were assembled into fanciful, mind-boggling sculptures at the World Financial Center Winter Garden this month.

The fantastical installations, created by 25 teams of architects and engineers, were part of Canstruction®, an exhibit and design competition that drops jaws in more ways than one. In addition to being a visual smorgasbord for New Yorkers to feast their eyes on, Canstruction® is an inspired campaign aimed at raising hunger awareness during the Thanksgiving season. At the closing of the exhibit, the pop art was dismantled and donated to City Harvest for distribution to programs that feed hungry New Yorkers.

Coverage of the exhibition included CNN, New York Times, New York Post, WABC, Metro, Time Out New York, Flavorpill, NBC New York, and Gothamist.
