Sugar Plum Square


The Museum of Architecture brings its hugely popular Gingerbread City exhibition to Somerset House.

With over 100 entries, architects, engineers and designers explore this year’s theme ‘transport’ to create a city made entirely of gingerbread. Sugar Plum Square is a interpretation of the traditional Georgian Square with a pedestrian public space surrounded by terraces. The connection from the tram to the school is activated by the children and park visitors throughout the day.

As an open-source building system, the prefabricated, standardised units will be manufactures off-site from pre-cast gingerbread. The mix of residential units size and configurations respond to individual and family needs to create integrated, holistic homes for local Gingebreadians.

A very special thanks to Susanne Albrecht for helping us realise our entry 'Sugar Plum Square' which won Most Creative entry.
