Design Competition

SweisKloss will host 2019’s inaugural Canstruction, a long-running international design competition taking place in November benefiting food banks.

Canstruction is an international design competition, held locally, between architects, engineers, and design teams that build inventive sculptures out of non-perishable food items. It is a festive affair that challenges these teams to “out creative” each other. It involves the community in judging and participation, and benefits the local food banks. Canstruction Santa Monica has partnered with both Meals on Wheels West and the Westside Food Bank, which will receive 100% of the non-perishable food used in the construction of Canstruction. Canstruction Santa Monica will generate thousands of pounds of food for the community this year.

The competition will be held the first two weeks of November, 2019 in the lobbies of Water Garden, which has generously agreed to host this year’s competition.

The deadline to enter the competition is September 30th and space is limited to the first 20 teams. To learn more please visit
