Welcome to the 10th Annual Canstruction®
Orange County Design-Build Competition

IT STARTS WITH ONE CAN®.
TO FEED THE HUNGRY.
TO LIFT THE SPIRIT.
TO CHANGE THE WORLD.

Canstruction® is using one can of food as a catalyst for change.
One Can to represent the building blocks of massive sculptures.
One Can to prove that every act of kindness makes a difference.

Canstruction® Orange County Combines the fun of a design-build competition with an ingenious way to help feed hungry people. Local prominent architectural, engineering, planning, and design firms, and students mentored by these professionals, create phenomenal structures built entirely out of canned food. The structures go on view to the public at South Coast Plaza (in conjunction with the Festival of Children), John Wayne Airport, and ARTIC throughout the month of September .
