Hoefer Welker Architects partnered with McCown Gordon Construction for the annual Canstruction event that took place on Wednesday, January 12th at Ward Parkway Center. Our design of a giant chess board with assorted chess pieces was awarded the People’s Choice Honorable Mention.
Canstruction, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that holds annual design and build competitions to construct fantastic, giant sized, structures made entirely out of canned food. In each city after the structures are built and the winners declared the creations go on view to the general public as giant art exhibits. At the close of the competitions all of the food used in the structures is donated to the local food banks for distribution to community emergency feeding programs (Visit www.canstruction.org for more information).
