Design & Construction Firm SweisKloss presents Canstruction!

Canstruction is a long-running international design competition between architects, engineers and design teams, that build sculptures out of non-perishable food items. Now in Santa Monica it’s a festive affair that challenges teams to “out creative” each other, involves the community in judging and participation, and benefits local food banks!

This year’s theme is, “It’s All Fun and Games at the Beach”. Awards will be given in the following categories:

Best meal
Structural ingenuity
Best original design
Best labels
People’s choice
Most cans

Structures will be on display and open to the public from Nov 3-16, 2019 at Water Garden 1620 26th Street Santa Monica, CA 90404
