Canstruction at Reagan National Airport
Posted Wednesday, July 12

Be creative, inspire teamwork, help your community and have fun!

AIA Northern Virginia is looking for teams to join the fun and build fantastic structures entirely from cans at Reagan National Airport on October 27. The Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) is counting on us and we are counting on you to help.

During the last 13 years we have donated tens of thousands of cans to help our neighbors in need. In 2016 we were also able to donate $36,504 in cash donations to AFAC, placing us 5th highest in cash donations among all International competitions, over 135 of them.

We will again be building at Reagan National Airport, where over 480,000 people will view your creation.

Build-out night is Friday, October 27 and our structures are on display until de-Canstruction on Sunday, November 5. Building spots are limited, so register your team today.

Our creations are imaginative, entertaining, structurally intriguing and award-winning!

During our 13 years of participation, our teams have earned the top International Award for Jurors’ Favorite TWICE, competing with over 1,200 structures from cities worldwide. MTFA Architecture took top prize in the 2015 competition and Samaha Associates won the award in 2010.

Is this your year to win? With Canstruction®, you win whether you get a trophy or not because, just by participating, you help to feed those in need. Please consider forming a team this year. Find additional information and the team registrations form HERE.
