)-- Jeff Davis, president of JDavis Architects, PLLC, has announced that the firm will again participate in Canstruction®, a national competition that challenges architect and engineer teams to make giant sculptures with canned food. The competition will be held Sept. 23 at the Exploris Museum on 201 East Hargett Street, and the can sculptures will be on exhibit from Sept. 29 through Jan. 27. At the conclusion of the exhibit, all the canned food used will be donated to local food banks.
JDavis Architects is currently seeking corporate and individual sponsors to help fund its project – to construct the Hungry Hungry Hippos entirely out of cans. Sponsors’ names will be listed in the official Canstruction program and displayed alongside the JDavis sculpture throughout the duration of the exhibit. For more information on this year’s event, contact Sarah Wolfe at 919-857-1008 or visit http://www.exploris.org.
“Our firm is proud to participate in a competition with such a philanthropic mission,” said Davis. “As a result of this competition, the community receives food donations and citizens are more aware of our community’s needs.”
Trademarked by the Society of Design Administration, and working in tandem with the American Institute of Architects and other members of the design and construction industry, Canstruction® is making a significant contribution to the fight against hunger. Canstruction® combines the competitive spirit of a design/build competition with a unique way to help feed hungry people. Competing teams, led by architects and engineers, showcase their talents by designing giant sculptures made entirely out of canned foods. At the close of the exhibitions, all of the food used in the structures is donated to local food banks for distribution to pantries, shelters, soup kitchens, elderly and day care centers.
