2009 AIA COLUMBUS CHAPTER CANSTRUCTION

 

 

On March 3, 2009, a team of volunteers led by Rogers Krajnak Architects, Inc. and Ruscilli Construction Co. assembled their entry for this year’s Canstruction Columbus event from 2,232 cans of food.  Held at the Center of Science and Industry (COSI), and sharing space with the exhibit “Frogs, a Chorus of Colors,” the event managed to raise awareness both for hunger and the environment with this year’s theme of “being Green.”

RKA and Ruscilli Construction’s response to this year’s theme is a design featuring a sphere (representing the earth) circumscribed by a triangle of three arrows.  The arrows represent the actions that are the moral imperative for responsible consumers: reduce, reuse, and recycle.  Judges awarded the design with an Honorable Mention.
