New York City CAN-struction Competiton and Exhibition

The 24th Annual New York City CAN-struction® Competition and Exhibition returns and will be on view at locations throughout Brookfield Place from November 3 - 18, 2016. The competition 6highlights the creativity and compassion of the area's top architectural and construction firms to design and build giant structures made entirely from cans of food.

These astounding structures are helping to change the world – by lifting the spirits of those in need, by raising public awareness, and most importantly, by collecting millions of pounds of food for local food banks.

At the close of the competition all of the food from the New York City competition will be donated to City Harvest.

The New York City CANstruction® Competition has begun its 24th year thanks to the hundreds of volunteers, contributors and participants who dedicate their time and talent. 

This year the structures will provide enough food to feed nearly 60,000 hungry New Yorkers and we hope to double that amount through contributions from the public.

The exhibition will be housed in several locations within the Brookfield Place Complex at 230 Vesey Street.

The exhibit will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.

Come and visit and bring a can to donate to City Harvest while your at it.
