Canstruction Announces Winners of 19th Annual International Competition

May 13, 2012

Portland, OR (May 7, 2012) – Canstruction, Inc announced the seven winners of who received top honors for the 19th Annual Canstruction International Design Competition.   Of the seven awards, local AIA New Jersey and AIA Newark & Suburban based NK Architects entry “15 Minutes of Fame to Fight Hunger” earned the Best Use of Labels and, for the third year in a row, the coveted Most Cans award.

Judges marveled at the careful shading, color, can placement and the massive scale of the structure with 17,411 cans of food.  An accurate self portrait of the iconic artist, Andy Warhol.  Molly Georgetta of the Portland Compound Gallery thought the Campbell’s soup cans lining the exterior were “very punny”.
