Visit the 2016 “Canstruction®” Competition This Noel Night

December 1, 2016

Wayne State University is partnering with Gleaners Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan, Kroger and the American Institute of Architects for the 5th annual “Canstruction®.” Canstruction® is a competition where teams design and build giant sculptures made completely of cans to feed hungry neighbors. WSU hosts the Canstruction® Design and Build exhibit on campus at the Welcome Center during NOEL night and the display remains up for the week following the event. Teams include Metro Detroit architects, engineers, contractors, designers and students with backgrounds in engineering, design or architecture. 

This year’s event will once again take place during NOEL Night on Friday, December 3, 2016 in Midtown.
