CANstuction Competition Held in Rochester, NY

CANstruction design and build competitionAlfred State College alumni continue to use their education, both for work, for fun, and for charity. Recently, several ASC grads competed in the CANstruction design and build competition, held in Rochester. CANstruction is an international charity created by the Society for Design Administration. Architects and engineers create giant works of sculptural art made entirely out of canned and packaged foods. Items used in the local contest benefit Foodlink. Winners included The LaBella team, which won the Best Meal award for “Alienate Hunger” (3,220 cans) and included ASC alumni Eric Ferri (BS-AT '03) and Brad Humberstone (BS-AT '07). The Pike team won Honorable Mention “Ride the Wave to Fight Hunger!” (8,833 cans) and included ASC alumni Jason Shumaker (AAS-AET '01 and BS-CM '03) and Tim Porter (BS-AT '05). With can-do attitudes, they brainstormed, designed, and built winning entries for the 2010 competition. Winners will compete in their categories internationally through submission of slide photography to a national panel of jurors. Pictured here, “Alienate Hunger.” To see more, go to
