New, 5 comments

CULVER CITY: Last week, Canstruction LA held its 2011 awards for achievements in canned food architecture (the cans are all donated to the LA Foodbank when the exhibition closes). The jury of esteemed design and culinary experts named RTKL Associates's "Take a Bite out of Hunger" as its Jurors' Favorite. Best Use of Labels went to Callison and KPFF's "CAN-opoly," the daring "Feed Back Loop" by HMC Architects and Buro Happold Engineers won for Structural Ingenuity, and HKS Architects's "A Gift for Hunger" nabbed Best Meal. See all the entries here or go see them live at Westfield Culver City through tomorrow evening. [Curbed Inbox]

BEVERLY HILLS: We heard a rumor that 9577 Sunset, the out of control, gold-doorknobbed mega-mansion built by real estate investor C. Frederick Wehba, was in escrow. The 36,000 square foot house first hit the market in June 2010, before it was even completely finished, asking $68.5 million; it was later chopped to $55 million. Mauricio Umansky, the real estate agent for the house, tells us they're working on a deal, but it's not still not finished and there's no escrow yet. [Curbed Staff]
