What is Gingertown? Not a collective of redheads. Founded in 2006 by David M. Schwarz Architects, GINGERTOWN is a one-of-a-kind holiday initiative that brings together the leading architects, designers, and architectural firms in the D.C. area with building enthusiasts – young and old – to create a town made of completely of ginger bread. And, it’s all for a good cause.
Each year, David M. Schwarz Architects creates a new master plan for the magical town of ginger. Like all great master plans, the GINGERTOWN plan has the sense and rhythm of a traditional planned city, but unlike like other towns, the streets of GINGERTOWN are paved in Reeses Pieces and Rice Krispies, and typically have lamp posts constructed of candy canes.
