San Antonio's 12th annual Canstruction® competition combines the competitive spirit of a design/build competition with a unique way to help feed the hungry.  It also showcases the talents of local design and construction industry professionals and the students they mentor.

Ten teams representing the San Antonio chapters of The American Institute of Architects and the Society for Design Administration are given 12 hours on Sunday, September 10 to defy expectations, logic and gravity as they assemble amazing sculptures using approximately 30,000 cans of food. 

The sculptures remain on display throughout North Star Mall's common areas during mall hours through September 23.

All canned goods used to create the unconventional art exhibits at North Star Mall will be donated to the San Antonio Food Bank at the close of the competition. In 12 years, Canstruction® has donated more than 472,095 pounds of food.  As the major supplier of food for the hungry in Southwest Texas, the San Antonio Food Bank helps provide food for about 58,000 individuals each week through a network of more than 530 partner agencies within a 16-county service area. Every donation, every SA Goes Orange for Hunger campaign button worn, and every means of public outreach helps to fight hunger and feed hope.
