In a bidding war that continued into the final hours, Finegold Alexander & Associates and their “House of Pops” emerged victorious as the gingerbread house that collected the most donations. Delicious!
Ruhl Walker Architects with “Prefab-ulicious” and designLAB Architects with the “House of Cards” provided stiff competition, ultimately placing second and third, respectively.
THANK YOU to all of the gingerbread bidders and bakers! UMass Dartmouth Department of Planning, Design, and Construction (“The Island of Misfit Toys”), Wilson Architects (the “Up” House), and O’Leary, O’Leary, Williams, and Seminelli (“Gummy Bears on Holiday”), you proved once again that great architecture need not only be in concrete, wood, or steel. And an extra special THANKS to our youngest neighbors at Bright Horizons Seaport and our young Learning by Design friends at Roslindale’s Sumner Elementary School: we look forward to someday seeing your creative constructions in more permanent materials.
We exceeded our goal — Thank you! This sweet fundraiser will indeed support serious work. Please send us ideas! We look forward to working with you in 2014.
