We’re thrilled to announce that the Museum of Architecture’s Gingerbread City is arriving in Belgravia, opening to visitors on Saturday 4th December. A light-filled display of expertly crafted gingerbread buildings created by leading architects, engineers, landscape architects and designers to create a futuristic city made entirely of gingerbread.
This year’s exhibition explores the theme ‘nature in the city’, asking architects, engineers and designers to use their design expertise (and baking genius) to create a city that explores imaginative new ways of bringing nature into our densely populated cities. Trading in their concrete, beams and glass for dough, sweets and icing, participants will create a mini-city masterpiece of eco-buildings and green infrastructure, and show how greener cities make them cooler, cleaner and healthier places to be. The exhibition raises money to support the Museum of Architecture as a charity and helps to create programming, exhibitions and events. Plus, visitors can enjoy workshops to create their own gingerbread houses – perfect for all the family this Christmas.
Open from 4th December 2021 – 9th January 2022 at 6-7 Motcomb Street, London SW1X 8JU
