Gingerbread House 2014
3 December 2014 - 7 January 2015
Are there any limits to what can be built using gingerbread dough? This year’s theme for the ArkDes gingerbread competition is Room for All.
Themes such as summerhouses, metropolises, dangerous connections and homelessness have created great interest in the ArkDes gingerbread house exhibition. This year’s theme is Room for All!
For the very first time in the history of the world, there are more people living in cities than in rural areas. Cities are growing rapidly, and the equivalent of two coachloads of people move into Stockholm every day. How should we build so that everyone has room to live and exist together? What spaces are needed for children, young people, adults and old people to be happy in the city? Is there space missing in modern cities that should be there?
The contributions are divided into three groups:
- Architects, designers and bakers
- Up to aged 12
- All others who bake
In addition to those categories, Skanska will award a special prize to this year’s best design.
The jury names one winner in each category. A prize is also given to the public’s favourite, voted for by the general public.
