HOUSTON –  Canstruction Houston is back for another year at CityCentre!  The design-build project involves architecture and engineering firms, along with high school students, constructing figures out of can goods.

“It’s held in 150 cities around the world,” Carla Curtis-Galyean said, the vice president of Houston Canstruction said. “We’ve been doing this competition in in Houston for over 26 years, and here in CityCentre, it’s our sixth year.”

The structures will be up until November 12 at CityCentre.  Once they’re taken down, all the cans will be donated to the Houston Food Bank.  Last year, 118,765 pounds of food ended up being donated – the second most among Canstruction cities. For more information, click here.
