Canstruction 2015: Our Entry is Complete

See what 3,000-plus tuna cans can make?


We recently blogged about our plans to build this “Can2Go,” modeled after the popular smart-car sharing service, Car2Go, for this year’s Canstruction contest, where Transportation was the theme.

Yesterday was the big day to build our entry at the National Building Museum, where it will be on display through Nov. 30. We hope you’ll visit the entire display from 24 architect and design teams, which benefits the Capital Area Food Bank.

The National Building Museum took this wonderful time-lapse video of the process—our project is in the dead center of the columns near the top:

We were thrilled that the DCist blog featured our entry as its headliner in its post about the contest, and ABC 7 news will be covering the contest on Tuesday morning, airing at 8:40 and 9:30 am. [Update: Here’s the link to the broadcast]

Please vote for our entry on the food bank’s site, where every dollar you donate equals one vote for the People’s Choice award.

Here are some more photos from the construction—thanks to all our staff and their families for coming out!
