Gingerbread Architecture Competition

Glessner House Museum, 1800 South Prairie Avenue, Chicago


Show off your cookie construction skills at our 2018 Gingerbread Architecture Competition! 

Assemble your team of friends and show off your construction skills at our 2018 Gingerbread Architecture Competition! 

We’ll supply materials and refreshments, you can just show up and create your dream home (feel free to bring more supplies if you want, but everything must be edible).  You’ll have two hours to realize your confectionery architectural masterpiece.  No experience with graham cracker construction? No problem. Unfamiliar construction technology has never stopped architects before!

Prizes will be awarded for the top two structures. All proceeds support Glessner House, Henry Hobson Richardson’s masterpiece of urban residential design.

Advanced registration is required.  Enjoy snacks and adult beverages (Motor Row Brewing is providing the beer!).  Tours of Glessner House will be available.

  • $10 per person
  • $8 for members of Glessner House and AIA Chicago

Registration deadline is November 30. Registration and complete contest rules here.
