Canstruction 2015 is back and looking for entries!

In early May, Canstruction 2015 will once again be coming to Toronto. Canstruction Toronto is a non-profit annual design-build competition in support of the Daily Bread Food Bank. Each participating team builds a structure entirely from canned foods. For 16 years, the Canstruction competition has helped to decrease hunger and fight poverty in the city.

Since 1992, Canstruction has contributed more than 17.5 million pounds of food to food programs around the world, demonstrating that we can win the fight against hunger.

Canstruction Toronto would like to invite teams of engineers, architects, designers, and students attending schools of architecture, engineering, and design to take part in Canstruction at the Toronto Dominion Centre in Toronto. Teams must design and build structures made entirely from canned foods within a 10′ x 10′ x 8′ space.
