Canstruction Polls Are Open

by

Canstruction teams raced against the clock Saturday to finish their structures within the time allowed. All rose to the task and left an impressive display of canned monuments on the first floor of the National Building Museum. Now teams must turn from canstruction to promotion as they vie for the highly coveted People’s Choice Award.

Canstruction, an annual design competition among regional architectural firms, has teams “canstruct” structures out of canned goods. Fans then vote for their favorite canstruction by contributing to the team’s Razoo page or by donating non-perishables to the team’s bin located in the Building Museum. The team with the most “votes” wins the People’s Choice Award. After the event, all contributions, as well as canned goods, are given to the Capital Area Food Bank.

Below are this year’s participants. Click on the thumbnails below to see the project in full detail. Afterward, vote for your favorite canstruction(s) by clicking the link below the thumbnail.
