Gingerbread house 2016

1 December 2016 - 8 January

The theme for this year's exhibition of gingerbread houses is secrets at home. Visit ArkDes to explore a unique and sweet-smelling exhibition of imaginative gingerbread houses.

In the nooks and crannies of the houses, we find reflected our most personal and uncompromising home secrets. All the bakers were encouraged to translate their innermost secrets and private ideas of home into design using gingerbread dough.

A jury assessed the contributions based on criteria such as colour and design, edible quality, structure and how the work realised the target theme. An award is also presented to the general public’s favourite gingerbread house. According to the competition rules, the gingerbread houses can only be made of edible ingredients.

The competitors are divided into the following categories:
• Architects, designers and bakers
• Up to 12 years of age
• All other bakers

The jury consists of:
Gabriel di Grado, baker of the year 2015
Bea Szenfeld, fashiondesigner
Liz Agneskog, architect of Utopia
Kerstin Brunnberg, journalist and f.d. superintendent of ArkDes
