2021 Gingerbread House Design Competition

AIA Baltimore and the Baltimore Architecture Foundation are excited to announce the 2021 Gingerbread House Competition! This year, our challenge is for participants to choose a building from our Sweet Sixteen Round of BAF Arch Madness Competition! Prizes are available for winners in each of the awards categories.

Proceeds of the event, including sponsorship and registration fees, will support the Baltimore Architecture Foundation’s public programs and scholarships.

Fundraising Drive

We ask our design teams to compete in fundraising for our AIA Baltimore/BAF scholarships. The team that raises the most will win a $250 gift card to a local bakery!

Donations can be made here. Donors should specify the team they are donating on behalf of by checking the comment box in the donation form. Donations can be made electronically or by check.

You can enter as a team or solo. Participate with your co-workers, family and friends, or on your own.

Get inspired by the winners of last year’s Gingerbread House Competition.
