CANstruction Wrap-Up

Another amazing and impressive Canstruction has come and gone. With four teams participating, a generous 14,000 pounds of food was donated to the Ottawa Food Bank!

Canstruction is an event where teams come together to build large structures out of nothing but non-perishable food items.

Thank you to the teams – Health Check / grc architects, IBI Group Architects, Stantec, and CSV Architects – for their creativity during this year’s event. Cansturction is always an example of a fun, innovative way to donate.

This event wouldn’t have been possible without The Canada Science and Technology Museum, The  Society for Design Administration, The Ottawa Regional Society of Architects, and especially Sonia Joanis, the event organizer. Thank you!
