Canstruction + OC Food Bank Design Competition: SVA Architects & Design West Engineering Presents The Very Hungry CANterpillar.

SVA Architects & Design West Engineering Presents The Very Hungry CANterpillar.

SVA Architects is excited to announce that we’re participating in this year’s Orange County Food Bank’s food drive, through a unique design competition called Canstruction. We’re proud to partner with Design West Engineering in this creative effort to combat food insecurity in our community.

This year, we’re breathing life into a charming character from a beloved children’s book, ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. Using cans of food, we are designing and building a life-sized sculpture of the lovable caterpillar, captured in a moment of discovery as it emerges vertically from an apple. More than just an imaginative work of art, this towering structure serves as a poignant reminder of the pressing need for food donations, particularly in these challenging times.

We need your help to make this possible. We’re reaching out to you, our generous supporters, to donate canned goods that will be used to build our sculpture, our goal is 6,000 cans. Your contributions not only fuel our creativity, but more importantly, they help provide meals for our neighbors in need.

At SVA Architects, we believe in using our skills to inspire and impact our community positively. Canstruction allows us to do just that, turning cans of food into works of art before they’re donated to local food banks. We kindly ask you to support us in this venture. Your donations, votes, and encouraging words will not only propel our project, but they will directly contribute to a hunger-free Orange County. Let’s build something amazing together!
