After great successes in London, WATG and Wimberly Interiors' Great Architectural will be making its triumphant debut in New York City this year. The event is presented in association with Archtober, Architecture and Design Month New York City, on Tuesday, October 11th. New York’s finest architecture and design firms will battle it out at Gallery 151 in a competition to construct the best iconic building out of cake and edible materials of their choice. The creation that rises to the occasion will be crowned the winner by a group of judges on the lookout for entries with the most realistic representation, most creative use of materials, and tastiest building.
Teams will be provided with basic construction tools and are encouraged to experiment with their use of edible ingredients. Previous competitors from the events held in London have incorporated sugar glass, jelly and edible glitter spray into their creations. WATG and Wimberly Interiors expect New York's teams to come up with just as inventive and fantastical solutions for the event.
