At the ninth annual Capital Region Canstruction design/build competition, talented teams of architects, designers, builders, engineers, and college and university students will join forces to create innovative “Disney”-inspired structures, featuring scenes from Disney classics, modern day favorites and all including a little bit of magic.
The structures will be made entirely of canned food, instead of bricks, stone, glass and other traditional building materials. Benefitting The Food Pantries for the Capital District, these structures will be on display at the New York State Museum March 27-April 10.
This year’s participants are challenged to break a local record of 104,000 pounds of food collected in addition to monetary donations to support local food pantries. To tell us more – we welcome Natasha Pernicka, Executive Director at Food Pantries for the Capital District and Sara Stein, President of Capital Region Canstruction and Architect at EYP.
