Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Canstruction returns to Vancouver this weekend under the sails at Canada Place. This annual fundraiser for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society will feature the works of 23 creative teams as they build structures and sculptures using canned goods.

The displays are then judged in categories such as Juror’s Favourite, Structural Ingenuity, Best Meal, Best Use of Labels, and more. All are designed using only the product labels as the color palette. When the competition and exhibition is complete, the Food Bank anticipates over 100,000 cans of food to be donated.

Canstuction is open to the public from 10:00am until 5:00pm February 27th until March 6th, 2011. You can visit the structures, vote for your favourite, try your hand at building at ‘CANSCHOOL’. Admission is free however donations are encouraged and of course they will all go directly to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.

    Great! I haven’t been in a couple of years, so it will be good to see it again.

    What a fantastic idea. The canstructions are fabulous. Beats Legos for sure.
