Produce UK and Artist Lois O’Hara create a Gingerbread Park

Produce UK is delighted to be contributing to the annual Gingerbread City exhibition at the V&A Museum where architects, designers and engineers create an entire city made of gingerbread.
Created by the Museum of Architecture, the aim of the exhibition is to connect the public with architecture through an innovative display designed for the holiday season.

The city of the future features roads and streets that evolve into a people-first revolution. Regular take-overs of busy main roads and high streets; creating multi-use space for play, leisure, fun, street markets and simply living. Our contribution, Blam City Park is just that, an urban park for the city dweller, the flaneur, skateboarders, ballers, players and citizens who want out of the building into the open air.

BCP has been designed in collaboration with basketball court artist Lois O’Hara and baked by 12 year old Ivy Hanson, with help from our friends at @eggandspoon1 in Brighton. With a background in public realm development and enlivenment Produce UK offer an uplifting, inclusive and colourful placemaking addition to the Gingerbread City.

Open every day from 10am-6pm from Saturday 8 December 2018 to Sunday 6 January 2019 at the V&A Museum, Creative Studio on Level 4 with a total number or 24,000 visitors, over 42,000 page views over the corse of the exhibition and over 100 individual UK national and international press cuttings we can safely say this this years exhibition was a great success.
