In the run up to Christmas this year, we donned our most festive baking hats to compete in this year’s Gingerbread City, put on by The Museum of Architecture.
16,000 people went to see and smell the delights at the exhibition, where over 60 architects submitted their gingerbread creations. No Hansel or Gretel in sight, our gingerbread building was a mixed use development complete with external gelatin pool, polo rubber rings and sugar glass chapel. The candy crane moving the last pieces into place was a firm favourite and got a mention in the Telegraph.
All 16,000 visitors cast their vote and we were delighted to have achieved a top five finish out of 60 firms that entered:
2nd- Piercy & Company
3rd- Cottrell & Vermeulen
4th- Foster and Partners
5th- Thomas & Spiers
