Slice of life: the Great Architectural Bakeoff
WATG and Wimberly Interior's celebrated the Great Architectural Bake Off as it made an exciting return during the London Festival of Architecture, on Saturday 10 June 2017. Renowned names in architecture came to recreate the world’s most iconic buildings out of cake. The bakers were asked to produce architectural-gastronomic creations that explore the festival’s theme of ‘Memory’ and the results did not disappoint.
Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners claimed the coveted title of 2017 architectural baking champion with a gingerbread interpretation of their design for the former bullring Arenas de Barcelona. SOM was awarded ‘Tastiest Bake’ for their hazelnut infused Bienecke Library and WATG & Wimberly Interiors received an honourable mention for their edible Cathédrale de Brasilia, constructed with marbled sugar glass.
