Canstruction sculptures on display until April 13
LLB Architects has teamed up with Shawmut Design & Construction to build a structure out of canned goods to help support Canstruction and the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. This year is the fourth event held in Rhode Island since 2007 and exhibits made by architectural and construction firms will be on display from March 31 until April 13 at the Providence Place Mall Skybridge Concourse.
The LLB and Shawmut team have assembled a structure built from over $5,000 worth of canned goods. Sponsors of our team's exhibit include Arden Engineering Contractors, Benjamin Moore, Catalano Construction, ClassSick Custom Screenprinting and Embroidery, Jutras Woodworking, Landscape Forms, Maharam, Ruggieri Bros, Inc., Synet, Inc., and Tucker Library Interiors.
Canstruction is a food charity organization that holds annual design and build competitions to construct fantastic, giant sized, structures made entirely out of canned food. They partner with the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, an organization providing food to people in need and promoting long-term solutions to the problem of hunger. RI Community Food Bank will receive a sizeable donation of food from the event, estimated at 20,000 to 30,000 canned goods.
