Now That’s A Can-Do Attitude
Until November 22nd, New Yorkers will be able to see some of the most inventive design in the city at “Canstruction,” on display at the New York Design Center. Competing teams of engineers and architects have utilized canned goods to design sculptures ranging from a typewriter to a big apple to a sushi feast. (pictured)
With a mission to “construct a world without hunger,” these competitions are scattered through the U.S. and Canada. After the competition, all of the items utilized in the competition are donated to local food banks, shelters and pantries to feed those in need. Call us crazy, but we’ve never seen baked beans, spam and tuna look so appealing.
