CANSTRUCTION Santa Monica Competition - call for entries!

Dear Local Architects, Engineers, Contractors, Designers and Students of Each, 

Registration is now open for the inaugural Canstruction Santa Monica competition! The sooner you register the sooner you can get started!

Would you like to do some team building and benefit the community at the same time? Would you like to create art and give back? If so, get in on the first ever Canstruction Santa Monica.

What is Canstruction? Canstruction is an international design competition, held locally, between architects, engineers and design teams, who build inventive sculptures out of non-perishable food items. It is a festive affair that challenges these teams to “out creative” each other, involves the community in judging and participation, and benefits the local food banks. We have partnered with both Meals on Wheels West and the Westside Food Bank – they will receive 100% of the non-perishable food used in the construction of Canstruction. 

To encourage your participation, Ralphs grocery has generously donated gift cards to help each team purchase canned goods to be used in Canstruction. Your participation will help achieve the Canstruction goal of providing thousands of pounds of food to our community, just in time for the holiday season.  

The competition will be held the first two weeks of November, 2019 in the lobbies of Water Garden, which has generously agreed to host this year’s competition. Space is limited to the first 20 entries so please register now.
