The Great Architectural Bake-Off

WATG's Great Architectural Bake-Off makes a triumphant return to the London Festival of Architecture this June as, for the second year in a row, they invite the most prestigious names in architecture to recreate the world's most iconic buildings, out of cake.
On 11th June, practices - including Zaha Hadid Architects, Foster + Partners, Squire and Partners and Tom Dixon's Design Research Studio - will battle it out in Fitzroy Square to be crowned the winner of the coveted best culinary-architect title.     


Teams will be provided with basic construction tools and are encouraged to experiment with their use of edible ingredients; last year's entrants incorporated sculpted sugar glass, jelly and edible silver spray into their creations. This year, the WATG hosts expect even more inventive and fantastical solutions.

Teams will be judged by Sam Bompas of Bompas & Parr; Tamsie Thomson, Director of the London Festival of Architecture and Wallpaper* Editor-at-Large Henrietta Thompson who will all be on the lookout for entries with the most realistic representation, the most creative use of materials and – of course – the tastiest building.   

This event is part of the London Festival of Architecture Open Studios series, which sees over 50 London practices open their doors to the public: providing an insight into the thriving architectural and design scene in the capital.
