we say CANstruction®, you say construction

Canstructionlg
Who would have thought that just a few days before the chaos of NeoCon® ensued that more than 70,000 pounds of food would be collected for the Greater Chicago Food Depository at the 3rd Annual Chicago CANstruction® Competition. The competition allowed local architects, engineers and construction companies to create incredible structures using — you guessed it — canned goods. Check out Larson Engineering's "CAN-did Camera."

The event was held on June 11 and attended by over 200 guests. Among them were guest judges Mitchell Obstfeld, president/publisher, i4 Design Magazine; Jackie Koo, AIA, Koo and Associates; Chris Sowers, meteorologist, Fox Chicago.

The following awards were handed out:
