8. Canstruction Returns to Brookfield Place

Let’s Put Hunger in a Museum, 2016 for Canstruction at Brookfield Place

The 10th annual Canstruction Design Competition at Brookfield Place begins on Thursday, November 2nd. The creative and colorful food charity will present 27 structures made from unopened cans of food, which will later be donated to City Harvest to help feed over 500 soup kitchens across New York City. The sculptures will be created by 27 teams of New York’s top architects, engineers and students, hoping to win sculpture awards in categories like “Best Original Design,” “Structural Ingenuity,” “Best Meal,” “Most Cans,” and many more, including the popular “People’s Choice” title.

Canstruction can be found on the second floor of Brookfield Place, 230 Vesey Street. The installations will be on view from November 2 to November 15. The event is free and open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to contribute to Canstruction by dropping off a non-perishable food item as a donation.
