Support Members Participating In CANstruction

CANstruction is an annual exhibit and design competition that connects talented architects, engineers, contractors, and students to imagine and create colossal structures built completely out of canned food items. The structures are on display on the fourth floor of the New York State Museum for two weeks, raising awareness of food insecurity in our region while highlighting the local talent of design firms. At the close of the exhibit, every can is donated to the Food Pantries for the Capital District to help feed families in the Capital Region.

The 9th Annual Capital Region CANstruction charity event will be held on the 4th floor of the NYS Museum from March 27 through April 10, 2019.

The 2019 Capital Region CANstruction Theme is: DISNEY

Fourteen talented teams from the AEC industry (Architecture/Engineering/Construction) will build colossal structures made out of canned goods.  These awesome creations will be on display at the NYS Museum for two-weeks before the structures are dismantled and distributed to 56 local food pantries through The Food Pantries For The Capital District.
