Twenty-five teams will compete in this year’s Gingerbread Build-Off. In addition to the coveted Grand Prix de Show, prizes will be given in categories including Best Architectural Icon, Tallest Standing Structure, Best Traditionally Themed, Best Non-Traditionally Themed and Most Creative Use of Materials. Gingerbread buildings will be judged by an independent panel of food, design, art and architecture professionals.

Following the Build-Off, winners and select competitors will be featured in a one week exhibition, free and open to the public, at Architecture Center Houston.

Team registration is $50 and is available online.

The public is invited to attend this free event and cheer on the teams, and build their own mini gingerbread structure at the spectators table.
