What were bald eagles, a submarine, and a giant toaster doing at the New York Design Center? Being put on show for a good cause. Some of the world's top architects and engineers made creations of cans for the ninth annual New York City Canstruction Competition last month. Playful structures included AmeriCan Espresso by Butler Rogers Baskett, Sardine Submarine, 2001 by Polshek Partnership, and A Toast to New York! by Fox & Fowle, among others. The 100,000-plus cans used were donated afterward to Food for Survival for distribution to emergency food programs throughout the city.
