Last night, members of the Dattner Architects’ CANstruction team attended the 25th Annual Awards Gala held downtown at Battery Gardens Restaurant. The night was filled with drinks, appetizers, and camaraderie between fellow CANstruction competitors.
All CANsculptures are currently on full display at Brookfield Place until November 15th. Food cans will later be donated to City Harvest for distribution to those in need with part of the proceeds also going to Puerto Rico to help those affected by Hurricane Maria.
CANstruction is not only a design competition, but a truly unique food charity.
“To me, CANstruction means contributing to a very worthy cause in a creative and challenging way. We set our goal at a certain place and then try our hardest to execute it.” – Richard Jolta RA (Dattner Captain)
“It is our duty to care for the well-being of our neighbors and CANstruction gives us an opportunity as architects to fulfill our social responsibility through design.”
– Kate Spata AIA, LEED GA (Dattner Co-Captain)
We are grateful to be a part of such an amazing event. A big thank you to Anthony Figueroa and Goya Foods for sponsoring our team this year. We look forward to competing again next year and doing our part to continue the fight against hunger.
