Canstruction® is an extraordinary annual design competition and the most unique food charity in the world. Teams of architects, engineers, contractors, and the students they mentor will compete to build large-scale structures made entirely out of unopened cans of food. The whimsical, wacky, and truly unique sculptures are then on view to the public until they are dismantled and donated to City Harvest for distribution to those in need. Admission is free, but visitors are asked to bring a can of high quality food to the exhibition’s collection station in an attempt to surpass the record 91,000 pounds of food donated  at the last competition. For more information, go to CanstructionNY.com.

Bonus: Through Friday, November 8, you can also check out some Canstruction sculptures from last year at three other Brookfield properties: One Liberty Plaza, 245 Park Avenue and the Grace Building.
