We’re kicking off a 3-part series reporting on CANstruction, a nationwide program that aims to raise awareness about hunger. The event consists of teams from architecture and design firms from Washington, DC utilizing their skills to build sculptures out of cans of food. The build-out of these sculptures takes place on Sunday, November 18th at the National Building Museum and is open for the public to view the sculptures and vote for their favorite by bringing a canned good donation. All cans are donated to the Capital Area Food Bank after the event. Over the next 2 months we’ll cover the planning process, specifics on how the team developed the design-build model and actual footage of the build out day.
The Microdesk CANstruction team brings together varied backrounds and expertise to help execute the planning and physical build of the structure. Here’s an inside look at the team who will be participating in the planning, modeling and building of this structure. Meet AECO Strategic Implementation Managers Kathryn Dreitzler and Brendan Gregory; Architectural Solutions Specialist, Patrick St. Angelo and Director of Consulting Services, Greg Lehrer.
