The Museum of Architecture’s Gingerbread City is an annual exhibition where architects, designers and engineers create an entire city made of gingerbread and sweets. The aim of the exhibition is to connect the public with architecture through an innovative display designed for the holiday season. Now in its fifth year, 2021’s edition of the Gingerbread City will be hosted at the Belgravia location and focused on the theme of ‘Nature in the City and Re-Wilding’.

Throughout the exhibition, The Museum of Architecture hosted family workshops where children and adults alike could take a hand in creating their own gingerbread creations.
