2018 Canstruction® Competition
Mahalo Canstruction® Competition Sponsors!
Congrats to our 13th Annual Canstruction® Winners & Entrants
On Saturday, October 6 at Pearlridge Center - Uptown, for the 13th year, competing teams lead by architects, builders and engineering professionals, showcased their talents by designing giant sculptures made entirely out of canned foods. This years theme was “Comic-CAN."
A Kids Can Corner structure was also created with the assistance of hundreds of island keiki who brought at least five cans of food as a donation to the Hawaii Foodbank.
Canstruction® combines the competitive spirit of a design/build competition with a unique way to help feed hungry people. Over the past 12 years, 377,042 pounds of food has been raised to help feed the hungry in Hawaii – providing 295,766 meals.
HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE? VOTE PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD UNTIL OCT 20
One Can. One Vote!
At this time we invite you to visit Pearlridge - Uptown between October 6 - October 20 to view all amazing can-structions and vote for your favorite with canned goods. The theme for this year is "Comic-CAN".
To vote you just place your cans in the shopping cart in front of each can-structure. All cans will be donated to the Hawaii FoodBank to help feed our less fortunate communities

Canstruction® is Trademarked by the Society for Design Administration
What is Canstruction? Competing teams, lead by architecture firms, allied designers and engineering and construction professionals will design and build structures by using canned goods and other non-perishable foods.
Structures, ranging in size from 1,000 to 13,000 cans, are created by stacking a variety of can sizes and shapes using the product labels as the color pallete. Structurally self-supporting, the only other materials to be used are 1/4inch leveling, cardboard, tape, rubber bands and wire. At the close of the exhibitions all of the food used in the structures is donated to the Hawaii Foodbank.
Canstruction® is a national community service program trademarked and created by the Society for Design Administration (SDA) on behalf of the design and construction industry. The American Institute of Architects (AIA), Honolulu Chapter, working in tandem with the other members of the design and construction industry presents the annual Canstruction® competition in Hawaii.
Canstruction® is a design/build competition currently held in cities throughout North America. Click here to visit the official Canstruction® web site hosted by SDA and view photos of other cities' winners.
