2016 Phoenix Canstruction Recap
DWL Architects + Planners, Schaefer Engineering and International Tension Structures teamed up to support local hunger for this year’s Phoenix Canstruction Event. The overarching theme for our team’s structure was, “Ending Hunger: It Shouldn’t Be Rocket Science.”
The lofty vision of space travel appears often in our advertising, in our news, and even in our cartoons. While it’s admirable to aim for the stars, there is a greater goal that everyone on Earth can help achieve: Ending Hunger. Our 10-foot rocket is fueled and ready to reach new heights, contributing more than 2,500 cans of food that will go to St. Mary’s Food Bank. We selected our cans not only for their colors, but also for their healthful benefits: energizing vegetables, proteins, and carbohydrates. We even threw in some cans of fiery peppers to provide that extra kick all rockets require. But this is not science fiction… The tools and technology exist today to put an end to hunger – one can at a time.
Congratulations to our 2016 Canstruction Team for taking home the award for, “Best Use of Labels” for our Ending Hunger: It Shouldn’t Be Rocket Science structure.
Voting has ended but check out the other structures on the Phoenix Canstruction Facebook Page.
The rocket wouldn’t have been able to launch if it wasn’t for our generous sponsors who played a big part in helping our team launch this rocket!
