Gingerbread houses 2010
Gingerbread houses 2010
This year the Swedish Museum of Architecture's annual gingerbread house exhibition features 95 entries. See photos of all the entries here
This year's winners were announced on Sunday December 12.
The theme of 2010 is:
“I’m home now” – on feeling at home or being rootless.
Home can be a safe haven to which you return each day, a place far away or a longing for something unachievable. What is home to you?
This year’s theme is about something that is central to all of us. We build and care for and love our homes. We see our homes as a human right. Yet there are many people who do not have a home or who have been forced to leave their home and to search for a new one.
As usual, there is no limit as to how the theme can be interpreted. All the entries will be displayed at the Museum of Architecture.
Competitors will be divided into three groups:
• Architects and professional bakers
• Children up to the age of 12
• Everyone else who bakes
A winner from each category will be elected by a Jury.
Between 1 December and 10 December the public can vote for their favourite entry either at the museum or here.
Prizes will be presented to the winners on 12 December at 2pm at the Museum of Architecture.
The exhibition will open on 1 December 2010 and the entries will remain on show until 9 January 2011.
