Vancouver design collective, Creative Room, challenged 11 architects and designers to reinvent the traditional holiday gingerbread house and the results are pretty great. The rules were simple: forget "ubiquitous veneer of jujubes and smarties" and "re-interpret the gingerbread house within a modern context." The cantileeverd roofs and houses on stilts don't disappoint.
The houses are being auctioned off through tomorrow, Dec. 10 and are up to between $50 and $150 Canadian dollars (that's $42 to $142). So get bidding.
