Canstruction returned to Brookfield Place for its 21st year. The two-week event is a free exhibition for large-scale sculptures made out of cans of food—and also a food drive, which last year helped feed over 90,000 New Yorkers. The gravity-defying creations are the oeuvres of teams of architects, engineers and designers who use more than 100,000 cans, and participate in a competition for titles including Best Use of Labels, Best Meal, Structural Ingenuity, Most Cans and Jurors’ Favorite.
Entries this year included the citycentric (the Staten Island Ferry), the whimsical (the Loch Ness Monster) and the on-trend, like the Sharknado sculpture pictured above. Check out Canstruction through November 13, and don't forget to bring a can or two to donate.
