If you design it, they will eat. The 19th annual Canstruction New York event held last week brought out creative types across the design industry to allow their imaginations run wild for a great cause. Teams from several of the city’s A&D firms, local schools, financial institutions and more conceptualized, designed and built 26 sculptures constructed entirely from canned food, which was showcased at the World Financial Center in downtown Manhattan.
Six winning entries brought home top honors judged by a jury of their peers, including Interior Design articles editor Annie Block, Jeff Andrews of Jeff Andrews – Design, Michael Arad of Handel Architects, LLP, Wade Burch of SouthWestNY, Mary-Jean Eastman of Perkins Eastman Architects, Richard Hayden Swanke Hayden Connell Architects, Ellie Krieger of The Food Network’s Healthy Appetite and Chip Wade of HGTV’s Curb Appeal.
The structures, which totaled 99,305 non-perishable goods, were deconstructed this week and donated to City Harvest just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.
