Lucid Consulting Australia’s Adelaide team were involved in the first ever “Canstruction” event held by Engineers Australia at the Royal Adelaide Show this year.
The idea behind the event was to create eye-catching structures entirely from cans of food in support of Foodbank South Australia. All cans used in the structures, totalling over one tonne, were donated to Foodbank South Australia providing thousands of meals to help individuals, families and communities in need.
This year’s South Australian teams created structures based on their chosen thought-provoking themes of sustainability and children in developing countries. Three awards were presented to the teams at the SA Leading Minds Dinner held on Wednesday, 28 October.
Lucid are proud to announce that we won the Best Use of Labels and the Judges’ Favourite awards for our sculpture ‘Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables.’
Our talented team of engineers chose this theme based on the statistics that between 20 to 40 percent of fruit and vegetables grown in Australia are discarded before reaching the shops for failing to meet supermarkets' cosmetic standards and specifications.
The model used 2,900 cans of food all of which were donated to Foodbank for the needy.
