Canstruction Rochester’s 11th annual design-build competition is on display through Nov. 17 at The Strong Museum, 1 Manhattan Square Drive, Rochester.
Ten local teams designed and constructed giant sculptures made out of canned food. This year’s entries commemorate a new partnership with The Strong by celebrating “play,” and include a giant Connect 4, rubber duck and Big Wheel.
Canstruction Rochester serves as a fundraiser for Foodlink, and provides a fun way for local companies, architects, engineers and students to team build. Since its inception in 2006, the competition has resulted in over 330,000 pounds of donated food for local families.
This year’s teams are APD Engineering & Architecture, Bergmann Associates, Hanlon Architects, HBT Architects, Kids Can Too, LaBella Associates, Rochester Institute of Technology, RIT Honors Engineering, SEI Design Group and Wegmans Development Group.
The exhibit requires museum admission. A panel of local judges will review the sculptures and present awards in several categories.
Visitors can vote for a People’s Choice Award. Winners in all categories locally go on to compete internationally. Visit canstructionrochester.com for information.
