(Sept. 19, 2017) -- The creativity of UTSA architecture students is on display at North Star Mall.
Students from The American Institute of Architecture Students at UTSA, a registered student organization, competed in CANstruction, a unique charity art exhibition and event that is now in its 12th year in San Antonio. During CANstruction, teams of architects, engineers, contractors, designers and students design and build structures made entirely from canned foods within a 10’x10’x8’h space.
During this year’s competition, UTSA architecture students re-created the San Antonio Central Library using enchilada ingredients. The iconic building is known for its unique color, Enchilada Red, and was designed by renowned Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta. In their construction, the UTSA students used cans of chicken, enchilada sauce, beans, corn and chipotles.
UTSA’s participation in CANstruction 2017 was made possible by the Office of Roberto Treviño, District 1 City Councilman, the UTSA Center for Architectural Engagement, JC Stoddard Construction, Hossley Lighting Associates and Service Shade Shop, with support from UTSA professor Sue Ann Pemberton and AIA San Antonio.
The project will be on display through Saturday, Sept. 23, outside Banana Republic, after which the canned foods will be donated to the San Antonio Food Bank.
