With over 100 cities around the world participating in CANstruction® each year, we are proud to host one of the TOP 20 CANstruction® events in the nation. In the last 12 years, CANstruction® PHL has donated over 455,000 lbs of food and over $60,000 for those in need through Philabundance, the Delaware Valley’s largest hunger relief organization!
Join us at Bok Bar on July 17th at 6:00 PM for the aCANemy Awards, celebrating the most ingenious and memorable structures in the exhibition.
ABOUT CANstruction® PHL
Each year, the Philadelphia Emerging Architects Committee of AIA Philadelphia and the 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 demonstrate our imagination and creativity while also showing our commitment to the less fortunate members of our community. CANstruction® is organized entirely by aspiring architects, designers, and philanthropists. Through this event the Philadelphia design community serves as a catalyst for positive change in our own backyard.
Since its humble beginning in 1992, CANstruction® has donated nearly 82 million pounds of canned food to community food banks demonstrating that the design/build community can have a positive impact on the alleviation of hunger and malnutrition. 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. CANstruction® is one competition where everyone wins. We hope that you will rise to meet our challenge to “CANstruct a World without Hunger.” One CAN: make a difference.
