      Perkins+Will competed alongside Stewart in AIA’s CANstruction this past Saturday building the ‘Queen’s Crown’ out of various shaped cans of tuna, beans, and tomatoes. CANstruction combines the competitive spirit of a design/build competition in a unique way to help feed people in need. Competing teams led by architects, showcased their talents by designing sculptures made entirely out of canned foods. At the close of the exhibitions, all cans used in the structures were donated to Second Harvest Food Bank in Charlotte, NC. Perkins+Will and Stewart Queen's Feast Just as the queen of any land is tasked with providing for her people, our Queen’s Feast CANstruction exhibit is intended to represent the logo of our Queen City, Charlotte, and ultimately provide food to those in need within our community. By utilizing the types of canned foods selected – beans, tomatoes, and tuna – several different recipes can be generated at local food banks, providing a hearty and balanced meal for all to enjoy!

      • CANstruction - Putting Hunger on the Map

        Canstruction is an international community service project of the design and construction industry to benefit community food banks. At REZTARK Design Studio, I led the firm as team captain through the design, coordination and build-out of this structure made out of 4,600 cans. We live in one of the world's wealthiest nations. And yet, 14.5% of US households struggle every day to put food on the table. That is 49 million Americans, including 16.2 million children. The struggle against hunger is not a problem limited to the third world. We often consider ourselves protected against such an issue. News of hunger might reach us on a twitter feed or through a Google search or some news headline about Africa or Central America. However, one in six neighborhoods in the Tri-State area are at risk. Hunger is here. It is real. It is not going away by itself. Utilizing the graphic language of our sometimes distancing technological constructs (i.e. Google maps), we have decided to highlight that these technological tools are no longer just for pointing out a place on a map. Subverting this symbol into an icon for social justice proves Cincinnati is a tangible place, with its own culture. We are known as a former pork capital and we are known for our chili. At Reztark, we decided to use ingredients that will turn into chili including cans of tomatoes, corn, and beans. For the city's long relationship with food and in commentary on the power of our communication and waynding toolkits as a modern American urban center—we have combined the culture of chili with the iconic compass point of Google. We love chili. We are here. Google 'hunger in Cincinnati.' Find out for yourself. Let's stop hunger instead of just pointing it out.

                  Hyundai Capital approached us with the challenge of producing the best time lapse the canstruction world had ever seen. We shot this 10 build project over a 1 week period at 4 Orange County locations, 1 Texas, and 1 Atlanta. We then went to work in post production timing all the builds to custom music and adding in a 3d animated Hyundai Capital logo as the intro and outro to the video. The spot was used in social media, website, as well as being projected on a massive display for at Hyundai's Corporate Canstruction party. The response to the final video production was fantastic.

                    Mushroom RepliCANt is a temporary indoor caricature of Hy-Fi, a pavilion at MoMA PS1 designed by the New York-based practice, The Living. Built of biodegradable "mushroom bricks", our firm's structural engineers took on the unique challenge of analyzing Hy-Fi's tower design and assisting with its construction process. Integrating bio-design, a module of canned mushrooms, and parametric engineering, we seek to emphasize the ongoing struggle against local hunger with Mushroom RepliCANt. Like its inspiration, Mushroom RepliCANt produces zero carbon emissions, is self-sustaining, and will not end up in a landfill when this competition ends. Taking sustainable design a step further, this tower will feed hundreds of hungry New Yorkers.
