Canstruction competition at Ballston MallTowering sculptures made entirely of canned goods will be on display at Reagan National Airport starting Saturday.

The displays will be built tonight (Friday) starting at 5:00 p.m. Competitors will have seven hours to construct the sculptures and they will be in DCA’s baggage claim levels in Terminals B and C until Saturday, Nov. 9.

After the displays are taken down, all of the canned goods will be donated to the Arlington Food Assistance Center. The sculpture competition is sponsored by the Northern Virginia chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

There will be seven sculptures built by seven teams of local architects. Members of the public are invited tonight to watch the teams build their pieces, which the AIA said “become more visually interesting as the night progresses.”

This is the 10th year of “Canstruction” in Northern Virginia. Last year’s competition was held at Ballston Common Mall.
