2023 Canstruction® Winners
18th Annual Canstruction® Competition Results
Theme: "Passports to Hunger"
An amazing 19,571 pounds of cans and almost $11,000 in donations were
collected for 2023 which translates into 39,780 meals for the Hawai'i FoodBank!
On September 16th, eight teams of local architects and allied professionals put their design and building skills to the test as they creatively “CANstructed” dynamic 3D structures, each made entirely of several thousand cans of food, which were donated to the Hawai‘i Foodbank — in AIA Honolulu’s 18th Annual Canstruction® competition at Kahala Mall.
A BIG MAHALO to all our 8 teams of local architects and allied professionals who supported this worthy cause with their time, talent and can purchases! Also, a HUGE THANK YOU to our Canstruction Committee and all who volunteered, voted and donated money to make this event such an amazing success for the people of Hawai'i!
Since its inception, AIA Honolulu’s Canstruction® Competition has gathered 743,690 pounds of canned goods – enough food to make 612,437 meals.
