Not your usual cookie-cutter houses

Vancouver Special and Creative Room organized a gingerbread house extravaganza (source). Vancouver architects and designers have created baked goods that are being auctioned off to benefit the homeless of Vancouver - click here to bid. In no particular order, here are the houses (click to enlarge):


D'Arcy Jones


Stantec


Shape Architecture


University of BC School of Architecture
and Landscape Architecture


Measured Architecture


Busby


Bricault Design

Bruce Carscadden

All are on view at Vancouver Special as well.

Update: the link to bid is fixed - good luck bidding!

Hi,

Your "click here to bid" link does not work so I thought I would direct readers to :

creativeroom.ca/gingerbread/houses

where everyone can place their bids.

Creative Room is one of the main organizers of this event and we've been very excited about this whole project. We are also really looking forward to the Judging of the houses and Closing Auction tonight, November 25th, at Vancouver Special (3612 Main Street at 20th Avenue from 7pm - 10pm) Tickets for this event are on for sale at :

creativeroom.ca/gingerbread

All proceeds from this event go to Pivot Legal Society.

Thank you for taking an interest in our competition and charity auction and we hope to see you all tonight!
