Canstruction 2012

Canstruction is back, featuring colossal can structures created by competing teams made up of architects and engineers. The teams showcase their talents by designing giant sculptures made entirely out of cans. The exhibit is free and on display at Liberty Place.

About Canstruction 2012
During the exhibition, supporters will be able to vote on their favorite structure right here on our website. At 5pm on May 12th, the structure with the most votes will win the People’s Choice Award!

At the close of the exhibition, the cans used in the structures will be donated to Philabundance. Canstruction is a national charity that combines the competitive spirit of design with a unique way to help feed hungry people. Canstruction is held in nearly 100 cities across North America.
