Food Bank Fish: TD Centre
As I hurried to the Design Exchange last Thursday for the annual design awards I passed through the lobby of the Mies van der Rohe designed TD Centre. Along the north wall were sculptures made from thousands of cans - food cans destined for Toronto's Daily Bread food bank. I did not have enough time to stop for details although I think an engineering society created this installation.

Does anyone have the story behind the can-based sculptures? They are worth looking at and remember, donations to the food bank are an effective way to contribute to the health of our community.

Update: Here is a link to more information on the event. Last year's winners were Diamond and Schmidt Architects. The sculptures will be on display at the TD Centre until December 1.
