VDA Productions and Symmes Maini & McKee Associates Team Up For Annual Canstruction, Design and Build Competition
Spotlight Placed on Industry Leaders Raising Awareness of the Issues Surrounding Hunger
BOSTON, Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – VDA Productions has teamed with Symmes Maini & McKee Associates (SMMA) to participate in the annual Canstruction design/build competition to construct giant artistic sculptures made entirely out of canned food.
Developed in 1992 with the vision to unite the design and construction community, Canstruction has grown to become one of the largest contributors to food banks in the world. Design/build competitions are currently hosted in over 140 cities world-wide accounting for the donation of over 15 million pounds of canned food to alleviate the plague of hunger and malnutrition.
“What better way to honor the mission and vision of this great event than to bring together VDA Productions and SMMA as a contributing team,” said David G. Breen, Principal Designer and Founder at VDA Productions. “The sculptures may not be made out of Jelly Beans, a pun to those of you who know VDA, but the competition certainly plays to our creative and engineering strengths, while giving back to the community we all call home. Our feeling is that together as a team we can accomplish more!“
The 17th Annual Canstruction Boston event will be hosted by the Boston Society of Architects (BSA) from the build date of October 13, 2012 through November 3, 2012 and will benefit the Merrimack Valley Food Bank.
