Each year, representatives from the Bonstra | Haresign ARCHITECTS team participate in Washington, DC’s Gingertown hosted by David M. Schwartz Architects. This year, there were over 45 firms represented, and we were proud to be an “Elf Sponsor” supporting the Children’s National Medical Center, Community of Hope, Saint Elizabeth’s Hospital, the Wendt Center, So Others Might Eat and more. Our Gingerbread creation, San GINGER Maggiore (after San Giorgio Maggiore), fit nicely into the Venice Grand Canal master plan, and was awarded the Judge’s Choice Award! While many teams brought stencils and pre-assembled pieces for their buildings, our design came together in a team effort on the spot. Check out our design process and selected materials!
