Gingerbread City masterpiece

In the annual Gingerbread City exhibition run by the Museum of Architecture, we designed, baked and built a spectacular residential and retail building made up entirely of gingerbread, Smarties, glacier mints and icing.

The exhibition delivers a festive exploration of architecture and design creating an imaginary city to spark open conversations about the way architecture impacts how we live and work.

The KSS team consisted of Associate Director Dan Bakeburn, Associate Dough Rogers, Associate Jonathan Dreyfudge, Architect Joanna Pieland, Architect Sally Emeryebread and Interior Designer Theresa Brownie.

The masterplan for the 2017 Gingerbread City is based on four different city ‘quarters’ each with a strong and distinctive character. Our creation is located in The New Town, Churning and Central Baking District, an area renowned for its strong local industrial heritage and Victorian influences.

Our designs are inspired by the rich architectural styles and character of the local area delivering a stunning building for local gingerbread men and women to enjoy. The addition of multi-coloured Smarties to the roof structure adds an element of flair and panache to the beautifully crafted and elegant design.

If you would like to see our creation, and the fantastic Gingerbread City, the exhibition is open until 22 December 2017.
