Recent News

December 2022


Squire & Partners entered the Gingerbread City competition at Somerset House in collaboration with Mosaic Engineers, which challenges leading architects, engineers, and designers to create a futuristic city made entirely of gingerbread.

The theme for 2022 was 'designing for different climates' and to champion sustainable design in gingerbread with materials suitable to their
temperate zone.

Created over several design sessions, the teams built 'Ging-Spiring Spaces', a landmark that sits at the top of the hill as a signal of hope and celebration with the tropics chosen as the natural climate zone choice for building sustainable materials. 

The Gingerbread City exhibition is on display to the public at 6-7 Motcomb Street from 3rd of December 2022 until 3rd January 2023.
