It's art mixed with tasty do gooding. The 5th Annual Canstruction is now on display, showing off the work of seven teams of architects, designers, builders, and engineers who took canned food to build structures meant for feeding instead of housing. After November 6th when the exhibit ends, the 10,000 or so cans will go to the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank.

“The Foodbank is grateful for the design community’s support,” said Michael Flood, president and CEO the Foodbank. “This creative architectural display offers something for the local community to enjoy while they help us end hunger here in Los Angeles.”
