Architecture and design firms, schools, and individuals are invited to submit entries to the second annual CDRC Gingerbread House Design Competition, Exhibition, + Auction.
CLICK HERE TO see the 2013 winner.
THANK YOU ALL!
Submissions will be displayed at 290 Congress Street at BSA Space and in Waterfront Square from December 9 – December 22, 2013 (open seven days, 10am-6pm M-F, 10am-5pm weekends). During this time, donations can be made online and in person in support of the houses. Donations of ANY size welcome and all donations count; this works like a “people’s choice”: the house that generates the most in total donations will be declared winner. The individual who provides the highest donation for each house may decide the post-show fate of that house. Additional award categories may be recognized. All proceeds benefit the Community Design Resource Center of Boston.
1 Entries must be constructed on a 2’x2’ piece of ¾” plywood covered in tinfoil
2 Entries must fit within a 2’ x 2’ x 2’ cube (the size of our display cases)
3 Other than the plywood base and tinfoil, all components must be edible
All Boston-area design firms + designers are welcome to submit and there is no entry fee. We ask that interested folks commit to participating by November 25th in order to coordinate display requirements.
