Yesterday, the HOK DC Gingertown team joined several architecture firms in the DC Metro area at David M. Schwarz Architects’ office in downtown DC to participate in a “design-build” competition. Each team of architects and designers was assigned a lot in the Gingertown master plan and a building type. We were given some gingerbread and candy to build our beautiful gingertown buildings and 3 hours to complete the task.
Excerpt taken from www.gingertown.org:
“GINGERTOWN It’s not just Santa’s little elves that are hard at work at Christmas time. It’s architects too! Founded in 2006 by David M. Schwarz Architects, GINGERTOWN is a one-of-a-kind holiday initiative that brings together the leading architects, designers, and architectural firms in the D.C. area with building enthusiasts –young and old – to create a town made of completely of ginger bread. And, it’s all for a good cause.”
Hope you enjoy our deconstructed gingerbread grocery store!!
