Canstruction: Heroes and Villains

07 October - 26 October
Venue: BSA Space
290 Congress Street, Boston

Canstruction is a charity event and exhibition where teams of architects, designers, engineers, and contractors compete in magical feats of engineering to create sculptures made out of canned goods and other nonperishable food items—without the use of glue or other adhesives. Now in its 23rd year, Canstruction raises hunger awareness in Massachusetts by challenging Boston design teams to transform thousands of nonperishable food into larger-than-life masterpieces at BSA Space and in the Atlantic Wharf lobby at 280 Congress Street, Boston. The participating teams will compete for top honors in categories including Best Use of Labels, Best Meal, Structural Ingenuity, Most Cans, and Jurors’ Favorite, among others.  

The Canstruction 2018 theme is Heroes vs. Villains!
