AIA Triangle’s CANstruction at Raleigh Union Station

Published August 16, 2021 by Julie

AIA is hosting their CANstruction at Raleigh’s Union Station this year.

What is it?

CANstruction’s mission is to provide hunger relief assistance by collecting canned food for distribution to local food banks while promoting the design/build industry. CANstruction hosts competitions, exhibitions, and events showcasing colossal structures made entirely of full cans of food. After the structures are built, the creations are on display to the public as a giant art exhibition. Participants include teams of architects, engineers, contractors, designers, and students attending schools of architecture, engineering, and design.

The theme for CANstruction this year was TRANSPORTATION promoting awareness of public/alternative transportation in our local community.
