Canstruction is an international annual design and build competition to raise awareness about the growing hunger gap. Teams of architects, engineers, designers and students design and build ‘Canstructures’, structures made entirely from canned foods within a 10’x10’x8’ space. Teams compete for the titles: Best Design, Best Use of Labels, Best Meal, Structural Ingenuity, and People’s Choice.

After the competition and exhibition, the structures are deconstructed and all of the cans are donated to Daily Bread Food Bank, the largest provider of food relief in the GTA. A jury will judge the completed ‘canstructures’ anonymously on May 14, 2019 and the winners will be announced at an evening reception held at the Design Exchange.
