Gingertown is the best example of creative collaboration between large numbers of gingerbread architects. Founded in 2006 by David M. Schwarz Architects, invites leading architects, designers, and architectural firms in the D.C. area to design an build an entire city of candy, cookie, and confection. Participants chose a plot from a master plan designed by David M. Scwarz Architects, and are then free to develop their hand-crafted gingerbread building any way they like. This year's town displayed over 50 buildings including a dental office, dog park, clock tower, coffee shop, and bookstore set facing candy sprinkled street with candy cane street lights.  In addition to raising sponsor funds to give to charity, the Gingertown buildings are donated and displayed at local hospitals, health care facilities and community support organizations to help spread the message of joy and hope during the holidays.
