Please join the BSA Foundation for the Gingerbread Reception to view gingerbread designs from teams of architecture and landscape architecture firms on exhibition, enjoy light refreshments, and celebrate the incredible bakers.

This year’s theme is “Rep your arch' style," enabling participants to create Gingerbread structures interpreting their favorite architectural style.

Vote for your favorite gingerbread house through midnight on December 31, 2018.

Vote for your favorite structure while raising funds for the BSA Foundation’s community design programs and the CDRC! The close of the People's Choice Voting will be celebrated at the Awards Reception on December 18. Guest judges will also be announcing their favorite entries at the reception, as well as awarding the Golden Spatula and Golden Whisk to the designs that are most beloved by the public. Donations will continue to be collected through the run of the exhibition to support community design programs.

Now in its seventh year, the Gingerbread Design Competition and Exhibition is a fun and tasty way to highlight the delicious talents of Boston architecture firms.
