FORM Magazine is teaming up with the San Francisco chapter of Canstruction as media sponsor to host the city's first annual competition from June 22-26 at Metreon mall. Canstruction is a non-profit organization that holds yearly design competitions all over the U.S., where contestants build over-sized structures entirely out of cans. Winning designs are displayed in the city, then all component cans and foods are donated to local food banks. All proceeds from this event will be donated to the San Francisco Food Bank.
