Last night at the 2016 CANstruction New York Awards Gala, the Dattner Architects team was honored with the Juror’s Favorite Award for their submission – “Lean on Me”. The sculpture was comprised of 4,400 cans – all donated by Goya Foods. The team was also presented with an Appreciation Award, recognizing 10 years of firm participation in the CANstruction New York exhibits. Our firm is proud to support CANstruction in their mission to fight hunger and undernourishment, and to invigorate the community with public art. All the food cans from the exhibit will be donated to local food banks after the show is over. The exhibit is currently on display at Brookfield Place – and will remain up until November 16th.
This year’s CANstruction design/build team from Dattner Architects is – Richard Jolta, Rem Garavito, Blake Kurasek, Rebecca McCarthy, Kate Spata, Eileen Chen, Bart Mangold, Malik Zaidi, Aaron Opalka, Francisco Grimaldi and Praxiteles Lykos. Congrats on a job well done!
