More information from organisers:

The Museum of Architecture’s hugely popular, brilliantly festive and mouthwateringly edible exhibition returns to London. This year’s exhibition presents not just one edible city but five miniature cities. These are across five different climate zones: Polar, Continental, Temperate, Dry and Tropical.

This year, the Museum of Architecture is taking a global perspective and has challenged participating architects to design and build in one of five different climate zones. Architects will address why we need to think differently about how we build around the world. They will take into account local resources, building methods and the environment in order to act on the climate crisis.

Now in its sixth year, the exhibition champions sustainable design ideas and puts an exciting twist on the traditional gingerbread house. Over 100 leading architects, landscape architects, engineers and designers will use their building expertise and baking genius to create a gingerbread-based urban landscape. The exhibition suggests a new ‘normal’ in our post-Covid world where life is less stressful, more convenient and sustainable – where goods and services are easy to get, where there is access to green space and there is choice of afford- able, adaptable housing – wherever you are in the world.
