The good folks at People for the Ethical Treatment of Gingerbread Animals and The Canadian Centre for Research in Sustainable Gingerbread Technologies.
Over the past several decades we have become increasingly concerned with the state of suburban sprawl in the Gingerbread housing market. We have seen a tendency for Gingerbread homes to be built increasingly larger and with little regard for the state of our environment. The Hansel and Gretel-ification of the prevalent though wasteful Ginger-Style has resulted in a tendency for homes with enormous embodied energy. Decorative jube-jube, skittles and candy-corn adornment has become a reckless tool for Ginger Developers interested in capitalizing on a quick Traditional Ginger-Style aesthetic over the integrity of a well crafted, enduring and functionally modernist Ginger-Home.
In recent years, Gingerbread families have begun the trend to return to our Gingerbread cities and encourage Gingerbread Density. Our project offers a Ginger Tower solution with luminous mixed use podium with a modest Ginger Art Program.
In our firm’s constant desire to repurpose existing buildings and reclaimed materials, the construction of Ginger Tower 062 is of reclaimed Christmas records with inserted pre-fabricated Gingerbread Cookies. The nature of prefabrication allows the tower to transform over time as units are consumed and replaced in a simple regenerative program. It is, in effect, a PEZ dispenser model of Gingerbread Residential Unit consumption. The ability for our solution to endure from season to season illustrates our desire for Gingerbread-home technology to develop in a more sustainable direction.
Ginger Tower 062 is built with a modern Passiv-Ginger-Haus technologies to reduce heat loss and is powered by a single Easy Bake Oven District Heating plant.
We believe our solution is representative of the future ethic of Gingerbread residential construction.
