2017 marks the 11th Anniversary of the CANstruction Philadelphia event to benefit Philabundance and help drive hunger from our communities!
After an extremely successful CANstruction Philadelphia 10th CANniversary celebration in 2016, held in conjunction with the AIA National Convention in Philadelphia, our event has raised over 350,000lbs of food and over $50,000 in its decade of existence in Philadelphia! Each year, the Philadelphia Emerging Architects [PEA] committee of AIA Philadelphia, and the Philadelphia Center for Architecture and Design invite Philadelphia's leading architects, engineers, contractors, design firms, and schools of design to participate in this unique effort!
CANstruction offers our design community the opportunity to publicly exhibit our imagination and creativity while demonstrating our concern for the less fortunate members of our community. Our local event raises canned food and money for Philabundance, the Delaware Valley's largest hunger relief organization!
Please find attached the 2017 Official Call for Entries and Rules and Regulations packets. Entries are on a first-come, first-served basis, and the deadline for entry is January 30th. This year, we are accepting 13 teams to the exhibit, which will be held in a new venue, at 990 Spring Garden in their first floor gallery space.
Wherever a CANstruction competition is held, thousands of hungry people are fed, an awareness of the issues surrounding hunger are highlighted publicly, and a spotlight is placed on the design and construction industry as we give back to the communities that we help to build!
We hope you will rise to meet our challenge to "CANstruct a World without Hunger." Please email: [email protected] with any questions.
