'Tis the season to make merry. And what's merrier than gingerbread!? (Baking with it, constructing with it, devouring it...)
In honor of this winter confectionary delight, Architizer has launched its second annual Gingerbread House Competition. Winner gets an an iPad mini, so you definitely want to get crackin'. To help you get your creative juices flowing, we've scoped the interwebs for some great gingerbread architecture, from the Villa Savoye to the Guggenheim Museum.
While the following "houses" are all modeled on modernist classics, your gingerbread house can be anything you want—modernist, postmodernist, based on a famous building, or an entirely new design of your own. Just hurry: Deadline is Monday, December 23.
The Glass House, Philip Johnson (Sweet Lisa's Exquisite Cakes for the Glass House)
Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright (Tsontakis Architecture with Classic Cakes & Confections)
Farnsworth House, Mies van der Rohe (April Reed Cake Design)
Vitrahaus, Herzog & de Meuron (Herzog & de Meuron)
