Canstruction Jury and Photos
October 5

At Dulles International Airport, Transportation Level.

AIA Northern Virginia celebrates its 16th Annual Canstruction® Competition, featuring teams of architects building fantastic structures entirely of canned food, which ultimately goes to a local food bank, the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC), in time to stock their shelves for the holidays.

For additional information about the competition, visit the chapter website, or contact the Chapter House at or (703) 549-9747.

Canstruction® is a national charity of the design and construction industry under the auspices of the Society for Design Administration. For additional information and to see sample structures, visit the Canstruction website.
