Ziegler Cooper Helps CANstruction in the Effort to End Hunger

Each year, Ziegler Cooper participates in Canstruction.  In addition, this year our firm sponsored the KIPP Houston High School. The volunteers had a blast and created some awesome structures. Check out the photos above!

Canstruction, Inc. is a national charity of the design and construction industry created by the Society of Design Administration. For millions, each day begins and ends with the anguish of hunger. Canstruction, a charity sponsored by the design and construction industry, is determined to end this suffering. Canstruction is a design/build competition showcasing the talents of design and construction industry professionals and students they mentor. At events held around the world, teams are given just nine hours to defy expectations, logic and gravity as they build fantastic Cansculptures from thousands of cans of food. Driven by the knowledge that their Cansculptures will change lives – by lifting the spirits of those in need, by raising public awareness, and most importantly, by filling the shelves of local food banks – dedicated volunteers in a variety of categories bring their creations to life. During the next week, the super-sized masterpieces are judged in a variety of categories as these unconventional art exhibits are opened to the public, the cost of admission – just one can of food.
