Canstruction Build-Out Night Tonight at Dulles Airport
Posted Friday, October 4

Our 16th annual Canstruction® competition takes place at Dulles International Airport tonight, Friday, October 4. Local architects will build a series of incredible structures made entirely with cans of food, which will then be donated to the Arlington Food Assistance Center to help our neighbors in need. Hundreds of families will benefit from thousands of donated cans.

Children and adults alike will enjoy viewing the delightful and inventive structures as they take form. The public is invited to watch teams build from 5:00p until midnight. Structures will then be on public display in the Main Terminal, Transportation Level, between doors 1 & 2, through October 12.

Organized by AIA Northern Virginia and the Arlington Food Assistance Center.
