canstruction boston virtual design competition 2020 photoCool things made from cans!

Canstruction is a unique nonprofit organization that holds annual design-build competitions to construct unique, colossal structures made entirely from canned goods.

Founded in 1992, Canstruction’s mission is to highlight the issue of hunger and food insecurity across communities, collect food for distribution to thousands, and to showcase the creativity of the design industry.

The Boston Chapter of Canstruction was founded in 1995 and has been going strong ever since.

The theme for this year’s virtual design competition is “That’s Entertainment!”

Through the years – in good times and bad – movies, television shows, theater productions, and other media have kept audiences enthralled. From pure escapism to works of art that reflect the human condition, we love it all … and we want to see what you can design and build that honors this love! What has kept you entertained?

Interested teams should note that we intend to use the same theme in 2021 so that teams will have an option to refine their 2020 design and actually build it.
