The 8th Annual Capital Region CANstruction charity event will be held on the 4th floor of the NYS Museum from March 28 through April 11, 2018.

(Please note the Museum is closed on Mondays. For hours and other Museum info: )

Since Capital Region CANstruction’s inception in 2011, our dedicated teams have taken us on a creative JOURNEY by brainstorming, designing, then building massive structures made entirely from canned goods.

If you’ve TOURED the New York State Museum during CANstruction, you’ve seen the likes of Batman, Alice and Wonderland, an entire zoo, Emmet the Lego Guy, and followed some ants on their VOYAGE through Albany. The exhibit has taken you on an astounding ADVENTURE through space, sports, superheroes, and stories, and has paid tribute to real-life heroes.

Thousands of visitors from near and far TREK ON DOWN to the Museum each year to CRUISE CANstruction. This competition brings awareness to the wild RIDE A/E/C professionals undertake when they NAVIGATE the design and construction process. This yearly EXPEDITION has resulted in over 450,000 can donations to The Food Pantries for The Capital District.

Our teams are so dedicated they’ll RESORT to any means necessary to get the job done; after all, the JOURNEY IS THE DESTINATION.

To move, to breathe, to fly, to float
To gain all while you give
To roam the roads of land remote
To travel is to live

The Capital Region CANstruction Theme for 2018 is: BON VOYAGE

Fourteen talented teams from the AEC industry (Architecture/Engineering/Construction) will build colossal structures made out of canned goods.  These awesome creations will be on display at the NYS Museum for two-weeks before the structures are dismantled and distributed to 56 local food pantries through The Food Pantries For The Capital District.
