Showcase your architectural, engineering, and culinary skills and compete to win $500 (+ bragging rights) in the Center's annual Gingerbread Architecture Challenge! The gingerbread structures are displayed at the Center for Architecture and Design in the weeks leading up to Christmas, at the same time as our family-friendly exhibition, Constructing Play: Classic + Modern Building Toys. The winning entry will be determined by popular vote.

This competition is open to individuals and teams of any size. Entries can come from anyone, including designers, architects, chefs, or just passionate foodies and makers! There is no age limitation, though entrants under the age of 18 must partner with at least one adult teammate.
