This year over 100 leading architects, engineers, designers, and bakers have created not one, but 5 mini cities across different climate zones: Polar, Continental, Temperate, Dry and Tropical.

The aim is to suggest a new normal in our post-Covid world where life is more sustainable, more convenient, more affordable, and less stressful.

The different climate zones require designers and architects to take local resources and special building methods into account, as well as bring new creative ideas to the table in order to respond to climate crisis.

The Gingerbread City is not just for the eye. The exhibition is running workshops – including family workshops – that you can book separately.

The workshops are running every day and invite participants to design their own gingerbread house for different climates in order to resonate the exhibition theme.

Adult workshops are available in the evening from 6pm-7:30pm.

Family workshops run every day at different times.
