Event description

Description

The 2019 Metro Detroit Canstruction Design & Build Competition

To benefit Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan

Teams of Metro Detroit architects, engineers, contractors, designers, and students will come together to design and build structures inspired by the theme "Inclusion" and made entirely from canned food within a 10' x 10' x 10' space. These structures will be built at Wayne State University's Welcome Center and will be on display for the public. This is a fun and unique way to contribute to the community, so please join AIA Detroit for this year's CANstruction!

2019 THEME: INCLUSION
When it comes to architecture and design, inclusion means more than simply being a part of something. It challenges Designers to serve the greater community: to plan cities and surroundings that are overall equitable but allow for the dignity of an individual. It is celebratory in the way it opens doors and builds bridges.
