Gingertown in former Creme Space on U Street

1322 U Street, NW

Nice. From Gingertown’s website:

“It’s not just Santa’s little elves that are hard at work at Christmas time. It’s architects too! Founded in 2006 by David M. Schwarz Architects, GINGERTOWN is a one-of-a-kind holiday initiative that brings together the leading architects, designers, and architectural firms in the D.C. area with building enthusiasts – young and old – to create a town made of completely of ginger bread. And, it’s all for a good cause.

The hand crafted structures are then donated and put on display at local hospitals, health care facilities and community support organizations to help spread the message of joy and hope during the holidays. Recipients of the buildings have included: National Children’s Medical Center, the Washington Home, Martha’s Table and Hannah House.”

Unfortunately public viewing hours ended this weekend. Here’s a peek in the window from last week:
