Brookfield Properties did what they call "Special Builds" prior to the Canstruction 2013 competition as part of their "Arts Brookfield” program as well as promotion for the upcoming Canstruction event. They selected our beehive "Take the Sting out of Hunger" as one of their structures and we built it at One Liberty Plaza. It was on display to the public for about 3 weeks in October 2013.
The team built "Taking the Sting out of Hunger" in the Canstruction 2012 competition as well.
Canstruction is an international charity competition where architects, engineers, contractors and students they mentor, compete to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food. At the close of the competition all of the food from the New York City competition will be donated to City Harvest.
