Barry Isett & Associates, Inc. is proud to be a part of the Lehigh Valley CANstruction initiative, organized locally by The American Institute of Architects, Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter (AIA-EPA) and the Construction Specifications Institute, Allentown Chapter (CSI). The food used in these can-structures are donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank of the Lehigh Valley and Northeast Pennsylvania. This year's, Team Isett Can! - with the help of our sponsors - used 5,625 cans and 63 bags of rice for their "Comic-CAN" inspired structure. We are proud to report that we won the Structural Ingenuity Award!
The team, led by John Carson and including Christine Mildner, Tracy Torres, Ben Craig, Josh Liples, Steve Landis, Christine Hower, Emma Yeh, Theresa Muldowney, Bill Leitner and Alexandria Carson, developed and built a can-structure to inspire smashing out hunger: the Incredible Hulk crashes through the wall of hunger with its giant moving fist (yes, moving!); Iron Man's mask stands guard as Thor's hammer chips away at the wall; and Captain America's shield protects the rear. They even brought light to the eyes of Iron Man! This sculpture, along with those from six other teams, were displayed at the Lehigh Valley Mall.
We would like to sincerely thank our sponsors: Wegmans, New Tripoli Bank, Jdog Promotions, East Penn Self Storage, Sundance Transport, Diversified Lighting and Barry Isett & Associates. Without their contributions, none of this would be possible.
