Seven joined a number of architectural practices in designing and building a bespoke gingerbread house for this year’s ‘Gingerbread City’ exhibition held at the V&A Museum in London. The exhibition created by the Museum of Architecture was based on the theme of ‘Imagining the Future City’ and included buildings such as hospitals, stadiums, gyms, cinemas, a roller coaster and much more!
Made entirely from gingerbread, sweets and other edible products, the exhibition is a delight to all the senses!
Based on a masterplan created by Tibbald’s Seven’s proposed mixed use design demonstrates how development in the future city will include compact multiple uses to reduce travel time by providing a combination of hotel and vibrant live/work units. Multi-functional space is included with ground floor units providing workshop/office space spilling out onto the adjacent landscaped square. A green wall covers the main façade of the hotel increasing the biodeviersity and contributes to the unique micro-climate of Gingerbread City!
The exhibition was recently featured on BBC News…you can watch the clip here https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-london-46488654/architects-create-an-ideal-city-made-from-gingerbread
