Canstruction NYC Makes National Headlines

November 22, 2011

For the second year in a row, PKPR handled publicity for Canstruction, the annual design competition which helps feed hungry New Yorkers during the Thanksgiving season.

26 of New York City’s leading architecture firms designed larger-than-life sculptures out of more than 100,000 unopened cans of food, all of which were then donated to City Harvest. Highlights of this year’s competition included sculptures of Angry Birds, a Converse sneaker, and Alexander McQueen’s high heels made famous by Lady Gaga. 

Highlights of this year’s coverage included features in the Wall Street Journal and MTV.com, a segment on WNYC, a Best Bets pick in New York Magazine, a shout out from Perez Hilton, and photo galleries in Time Out New York and Gothamist

Other national coverage ranged from ELLE Decor, WWD, and This Old House’s Bob Vila to Scholastic, TreeHugger, and Curbed.
