Microdesk’s Award-Winning Canstruction Build 2022
“A Meal fit for a King” wins Best Original Design, People’s Choice and Most-Cans!
Microdesk was delighted to take part in this year’s Canstruction event in New York City, winning three awards for our King Tut-inspired sculpture, ” A Meal Fit for a King”. This will be our third year participating in this event, with our sculpture being bigger than ever at 8ft tall and made with roughly 8,000 tuna cans.
We would like to thank our Canstruction build team for their hard work and enthusiasm throughout hundreds of hours of design and construction time!

Learn about our process and how our team was able to leverage BIM
technologies and applications
The Microdesk team was hard at work at developing the model for “A Meal Fit for a King” structure. Our team was spread out between the NYC, Philadelphia and Washington DC offices, but by utilizing Autodesk Construction Cloud, we were able to collaborate on this project and be on the same page at every stage.
The initial proof of concept was created in 3D Studio Max, and the model was executed and fine-tuned with Autodesk Revit. Autodesk Revit provided both modeling and documentation capabilities to make this project a success.
