Teams of professional architects, designers, engineers and students took part in the competition donating their talent and time, as well as 50,000 cans of food to build unique and edible structures that were donated to the Daily Bread Food Bank.
Built with over 52,000 pounds of canned food the structures were on display until June 8th, when they were disassembled and donated to those in need.
About 200 cities worldwide take part in Canstruction every year. In 2012, Toronto ranked in second place, raising over 85,000 pounds for the Daily Bread Food Bank.
This year the juror’s favourite sculpture was “TWO CANS are better than one” by Turner Fleischer Architects Inc. The display featured two massive toucan birds.
We snapped some pics of the building process, check out these impressive sculptures coming to life!
