CANstruction 2016!

It's that time of year again! Join the Washington Architectural Foundation and the National Building Museum to view Canstruction! Teams will build Movie Night-themed structures entirely out of cans on November 20. Their work will be on display November 21 through November 27 at the National Building Museum. See NBM website for hours.

Canstruction is a nationwide program that aims to raise awareness about hunger. In DC, Canstruction is organized by the Washington Architectural Foundation as a creative design-build competition that benefits the Capital Area Food Bank through donations of canned goods. Teams from architecture and design firms from Washington, DC use their skills to build sculptures out of cans of food that gets donated to the Capital Area Food Bank for distribution to those in need after the event.

Bring a can to vote for your favorite project! Join us on Black Friday and bring a canned-good donation to the Building Museum instead of going shopping. Our very own President Darrel Rippeteau is the Architect Sponsor for the AGC of DC Young Constructors Forum (YCF) entry in the contest, you can donate and help them get all of their materials as well as see their plans for the "cansculpture" they are building based on the movie Aladdin here.
