RCKa’s Gingerbread City entry

For the second year, RCKa contributed to the Museum of Architecture’s Gingerbread City in South Kensington. Nearly 50 architects and landscape practices from across the city were involved in crafting a extraordinary range of confectionary constructions and edible edifices to a masterplan prepared by planning consultancy Tibbalds.

RCKa’s own “Team Gingerbread” spent a festive Sunday afternoon in early December sipping mulled wine while carefully constructing a gingerbread terrace for a key strategic location within the industrial quarter of Gingerbread City.

The final design required 5 packets of chocolate buttons, 2 bags of jelly tots, a bag of icing sugar, 2 boxes of matchmakers, 4 packets of rainbow drops and a handful of millions. No concrete was involved.

The Museum of Architecture’s Gingerbread City exhibition runs annually in the lead up to Christmas. Find out more about visiting the Gingerbread City here.
