CANstruction (IRL)
« Opened on April 22, 2016, 07:29:56 PM »
So irl (in real life) I have been working on this project for my school where you use cans to create a structure out of. All the cans used for this gets donated to a food bank and thats one of the reasons why it is a really amazing project. So there are many schools around my area that do it to win prizes that will help us in the contest next year. The CANstruction people do this every year all around the United States, but have different groups that do it. Example, high schools in a certain city of a certain state. Or maybe architects in places that compete for the best structure.
Any-woo, This year's theme was cartoon. I came up with the idea of smurfs and that's the the school ended up doing. Then all the kids in the class made their own idea and design. MY design won. Then we went back and all the kids took my design and fixed it up, made it look the best we could.

Our structure has 4 pictures involved in it. The papa Smurf, the normal smurf (I think we decided to call it clumsy smurf), gargamel (the Evil smurf guy who trys to steal the smurfs), and a smurf house. Our build has a wall similar to a  w or a z shape. It has half of a picture on a wall, and in the distance farther away, there is the other half of the picture. These pictures are not connected, but when viewed from a certain angle, it looks  like a whole picture.
Anyway, here are the pictures for those who want to see!

10/10 would knock the whole thing down when there is one can left to place.
Edit: I thought the smurf house was Toad's head (from Mario)
Great job, Drew. He's magic after all!  :D

Actually, we pull cans from the bottom all the time when we misplace cans. It wont fall because of all the other can holding it up too. We also have cardboard abocve each layer of cans so it won't fall. Hehe nice try though.
