Canstruction’s primary goal is to “construct” a world without hunger. It challenges teams of architects, engineers and construction leaders to design and build huge, creative sculptures made only from canned food and other nonperishable food items.
Teams have competed in the Topeka Canstruction since its inaugural opening in 2014 and have created amazing structures that raise awareness about hunger and engage and inspire the community to take action to help solve hunger. All of the nonperishable food items used in the sculptures are donated to Harvesters to feed hungry families, children and seniors in our community. Harvesters’ Topeka Canstruction has provided more than 73,000 meals.
Canstruction was founded 24 years ago by the Society of Design Administration, an affiliate organization of the American Institute of Architects. Canstruction events are held in more than 150 cities across North America, Australia, South America, Europe and Asia and have together raised nearly 30 million pounds of food.
