Competition: Build the new municipal offices in gingerbread

Now it's time to start rolling out the dough, melting sugar and getting the walls and chimneys to hold together. It will soon be time for this year's gingerbread-house competition. New for this year is that the municipality is inviting architects and building firms to take part. The municipality would like suggestions as to what the new municipal buildings should look like – in the form of a gingerbread-house.
