Canstruction: Bialosky Wins “Can-Spirit” Award Two Years in a Row!

The Bialosky + Partners Architects CANstruction team has once again won the award for “can-spirit” at CANstruction Cleveland 2014!  This award is given to the team with the biggest enthusiasm and largest amount of cans donated through a can sculpture.

7,000 Cans ready to be Can-Structed!

BPA would like to thank our sponsors for their generous donations.  Thanks to their help we were able to raise over $5,750 and purchase over 6,900 cans of food to donate to the Greater Cleveland Foodbank during their Harvest for Hunger Campaign! These cans combined with the rest of the teams’ structures, will provide a record breaking number of over 30,000 meals to Northeast Ohio’s Hunger Relief.

The team works together to finish the structure in under 5 hours

With this year’s theme of “Route 66 – American Landmarks”, our team created a can replica of the Hollywood Hills.  Route 66 was one of the first original highways in the U.S. As one of America’s Landmarks and near the ending site of route 66; our sculpture of the Hollywood hills was built in hopes to help end hunger in Cleveland.  The front of the sculpture represents the undulating hills of Hollywood and the back gives a nod to route 66 with the classic logo.IMG_4016IMG_4016

With Route 66 covering over 2,448 miles, it was our goal to double that number in canned goods to create this structure.  To our surprise, and the generous help from our sponsors, we were able to meet and exceed that goal!

Fight Hunger in 2014 with Bialosky + Partners and CANSTRUCTION 2014

Bialosky + Partners Architects (BPA) is excited to once again participate in this year’s Cleveland 2014 Canstruction Design/Build competition which benefits the Cleveland Foodbank during their Harvest for Hunger Campaign. Canstruction is a national charity of the design and construction industry created by the Society of Design Administration devoted to increasing public perception of hunger through gallery-style sculpture of canned goods in public locations. (Below please find photos of BPA structures from previous years.)  With the help of our sponsors last year: · BPA raised a total of $4,557! · Our sculpture included over 5,500 canned goods, all of which have been donated to the Cleveland Foodbank. · Constructing the sculpture took 6 hours & 14 team members · After purchasing all required items for our sculpture, we were thrilled to have the ability to contribute an additional $120 cash donation to the Cleveland Foodbank. · Our team’s sculpture, featuring Farshid Moussavi’s design of the Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), was given the title “can-spirit” for most amount of cans and team enthusiasm!


This year, our goal is to have our sculpture consist of 6,000 cans (or cost approximately $5,000)! We respectfully request a donation of $250-500 as a company or $50.00 as an individual. However, your generosity at any amount will be greatly appreciated as we try and reach our goal. Your contributions will be recognized on signage next to our sculpture during the exhibit and featured in our BPA Cleveland Design Blog.Please follow the link below to place a donation to help us build our structure!

  Our sculpture will be on display at Beachwood Place Mall from March 21st to March 30th, 2014.  We kindly request any assistance you could provide by Monday, March 3, 2014 Please accept our gratitude for your time, thought, and consideration. We look forward to the potential collaboration with you for this charitable event.

Ready…Set…GO!!! Bialosky + Partners Architects at the RACE FOR THE PLACE!

Bialosky + Partners' employees and their families will be participating in the annual “RACE FOR THE PLACE” on Sunday June 2.  This is an annual 5K Race/1 mile Walk held at Beachwood Place to benefit The Gathering Place. The Gathering Place is an awesome, LOCAL non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to offer support for anyone whose life has been touched by cancer. Their mission is to provide programs and services that focus on the emotional, social, physical and spiritual needs of individuals with cancer as well as their support network of family and friends. All their services are offered absolutely 100% free of charge and include cancer support groups, resource libraries and support staff, tai chi and yoga classes, nutritional classes, art and massage therapies, wig salon and an extensive array of children’s programs. Again, everything they do is provided at no charge!  In order to do this, the Gathering Place holds a series of fundraising events throughout the year, but none is bigger or brings in more funding than the RACE!

The RACE is held annually on the first Sunday in June, which is National Cancer Survivors Day.  Details regarding the event can be found at:

Bialosky + Partners became involved with the Gathering Place in 2000 when they opened their doors to the public for the first time. Since then, we’ve designed their headquarters in Beachwood, OH on Commerce Park Drive and their satellite facility in Westlake, OH on Sharon Drive. We have worked alongside Landscape Architect Virginia Burt of Visionscapes on the breathtaking Healing Garden at their Beachwood location and continue to support them through our architectural talents and resources. As a result, our team has grown very close to the amazing Gathering Place staff over the years and consider them our friends and family.  We are excited to take part in their annual fundraiser and hope to raise a considerable donation! Please feel free to either join our team for this year’s RACE or make a one-time donation. Your donation goes directly to programs and resources that support their mission.
