Hosted by the Museum of Architecture and masterplanned by Tibbalds, The Gingerbread City at the V&A brings together the gingerbread creations of architects, designers, urban planners, engineers, and landscape designers with the aim of connecting the public with architecture in a festive exhibition.
This year’s theme is ‘Future City’ seeking to create a city that is inclusive, easy to navigate and sustainable whilst encouraging a healthy active lifestyle amongst its residents.
Now in its third year, Gingerbread City is an annual celebration of place, intended to get people who don’t normally spend much time looking at their environment to think more about the kind of places they live, work and play in, how these are created and how they impact on us all.
This year the exhibition is being held in the V&A Museum, from 8th December 2018 – 6th January 2019. Tickets to the exhibition at the V&A are booked through the V&A website here, and the Museum of Architecture are also running Gingerbread House-making Workshops for families.
The fun family workshops are taking place on the 8th, 9th, 15th, 16th, 22nd, 23rd, 28th, 30th December and 5th, 6th January for 5-17 year olds. Workshop tickets cannot be purchased at the V&A so advance booking online via Eventbrite essential, which you can find here.
The Gingerbread City has recently featured in The Evening Standard, Reuters, Secret London and The Mirror.
