Architects bake and build edible gingerbread city

Architects have swapped traditional building materials for sugar and spice to create an edible gingerbread city of the future at London’s V&A Museum, to show that urban planning can be fun, and tasty.

The annual exhibition, which runs from Dec. 8 to Jan. 6, showcases buildings by architects, designers and engineers who had been asked to create a sustainable and inclusive city of the future.More than 60 structures have been baked and the city features a cable car made of liquorice, and cycle lanes and pedestrian route made entirely of sugar.Holland Harvey Architects designed a modern homeless shelter.

The practise is in the process of designing a real-life shelter for the British charity Shelter from the Storm.Among the gingerbread structures on display is also a pavilion designed by Foster and Partners that was built by a robot – a first for the exhibition, according to founder and director Melissa Woodford.
