CANstruction® is a unique design competition and charity event that supports local hunger relief organizations. Each year this global event gathers teams of architects, engineers, contractors and students to design one-of-a-kind structures made entirely out of canned foods. This year, seven teams from the Baltimore region will assemble structures at the passenger terminals at BWI Airport. The structures will be on view for two weeks. All cans from these structures will be donated to the Maryland Food Bank after the event.
