CALL FOR CANDIDATES


STUDENTS AND ARCHITECTS "CAN" DO

The start of the school year has seen an added flurry of activity at the University of Maryland School of Architecture, as the 2018 CANstruction team led by the AIAS UMD Chapter and mentored by architects from the AIA Potomac Valley chapter worked to finalize a design and choose the thousands of cans of food that will go into building it. Now the design is done and the order is in, and we need your help to fund and build it! It's a great way to demonstrate the magical powers of design, while making a tangible difference in the community. We have an ambitious goal, but you can help us meet it. Remember - all money and cans of food donated will go to the Capital Area Food Bank to assist those in need of food assistance after CANstruction ends. 

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO DONATE TO CANSTRUCTION 
Thank you to everyone who has donated!
