Five teams of architects, designers and engineers go "food can to food can" in the fifth annual Canstruction event as part of Architecture Week 2014 and Hunger Action Month. All the cans used in the building competition at Park Mall, tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 27, will go to the Community Food Bank. The can-tivity takes place at Sears Court, center court and the space beside Abercrombie & Fitch starting at 9 a.m. Judging takes place on Sunday, Sept. 28 at 10 a.m.
Along side those big guys is the 13th annual Kidstruction, a design/model competition for middle school students from 18 local schools who've made models out of business cards, toothpicks and glue. Their models will be on display at Sears court. Each year the event is organized by the Society for Design Administration, Southern Arizona Chapter. The theme this year is Reinventing the Past, focusing on four architectural structures and how they might look if they were built today. Judging for Kidstruction takes place Saturday, from 8 to 10 a.m.
