Activate Charlotte: CANstruction (on view through April 6)

CANstruction is a national competition that engages the AEC community to help feed hungry people. Competing teams will design sculptures made entirely out of canned foods to build at the Charlotte Convention Center on April 1. A jury will select and award teams for the following categories: Best Meal, Structural Ingenuity, Best Use of Labels, and People's Choice. At the close of the exhibitions all of the food used in the structures is donated to Second Harvest Food Bank.

Team registration is $150, which includes team t-shirts and refreshments on build day. An informational kickoff meeting for those interested in participating will be held in early February.

Build Day: April 1, Charlotte Convention Center, 8:00 am - noon
Demo Day: April 6, Charlotte Convention Center
