Ecoled Light up the Gingerbread City

We attended the launch of the Museum of Architecture's (MoA) spectacular festive fundraiser last night to light up the sweetest of cities.


The MoA's Gingerbread City returned to South Kensington this week bringing christmas cheer to the streets of London - with an architectural twist.

Nestled inside 27 Thurloe Place, opposite South Kensington tube station, is a sugary city baked and built by some of the countries most creative architects and designers. 

The delicious designs include everything from houses, fields, bridges and shops to factories, stadiums, museums and even a gingerbread castle. 

And every great building - large or small - deserves great lighting. Our technician created bespoke solutions from our flexible LED strip range and installed the luminaires into each structure to bring the entire city to life with light. 

We worked with the Light Bureau to execute their lighting design for the venue, which enhances the visitor experience and reflects a festively warm atmosphere.

We were awe-inspired by all the intricate details of the buildings and would like to congratulate everyone that took part. Congratulations to MoA for organising such a unique and fun project and thanks to headline sponsors Tibbalds on designing a very successful masterplan for the city!

The exhibition has already made it onto Time Out's list of things to do this December, so make sure that you do not miss out on the spectacular event. There's also gingerbread house building workshops that the whole family can enjoy.

The exhibition is open every until the 22nd December from 9:30am-7pm Monday to Saturday and 10am-6pm on Sundays.
