Canstruction is an international design competition that invites teams of designers to create structures using canned food, which is then donated to those in need. The AIA Northern Virginia Competition is entering its second decade, donating all the cans to AFAC. Through the competition, the Chapter has become one of AFAC's top donors and was recently recognized as AFAC's 2014 Community Partner of the Year!
Canstruction build-out is at National Airport in the main terminal on Friday, October 27, 2017. Structures will be on display through the week. Upon completion, the food will be donated to AFAC, just in time to stock our shelves for the holidays.
If you have an architectural or design firm that would be interested in participating. please contact our Director of Corporate & Community Partnerships, Jolie Smith, for more information.
Thank you to our 2017 participating teams:
