Modern Prefab Gingerbread Houses

We often say that one of the virtues of modern prefab is that it lets the most talented architects work on smaller projects. We see proof of this in the city of Gingerbread houses commissioned by the Toronto Star from the City's best architecture and design firms. Will Alsop, known for his "legs and blobs," modelled this on "the renowned English architect’s Peckham Library in southeast London."


More Alsop- I really liked this one.


Johnson Chou’s creation is called The Rapunzel Tower and features a small window near the top with a shock of hair hanging from it. Pull the hair and some Smarties fall to the bottom of the tower.
