Building Blocks

Continuing on the theme of Christmas, after the whimsical Loewe video cheered me up, now comes the Langham Place gingerbread replica hotel which definitely brought a smile to my face. One of my fondest childhood memories is going to the Aberdeen Marina Club every Christmas season to see the life size gingerbread house. In fact, as a kid, I just might have broken some of the icing off to nibble at when adults weren’t looking. At over 100kg in weight, the gingerbread version of the Langham Place is no small feat. It’s 100th the size of the actual hotel and stands at over seven feet high. This gingerbread hotel includes all 42 floors, over 700 windows, an identical rooftop swimming pool and can even lights up. How’s that for a cool engineering feat?
