Fatkin entered ‘The Gingerbread City’ annual exhibition hosted by charitable organisation the Museum of Architecture. The Christmas public exhibition event raised money to support the charity’s work. The theme for this year’s exhibition was ‘Nature and the City: re-wilding and creating space for biodiversity and balance’

Fatkin created a multi-storey car park made of gingerbread and decorated with edible ingredients and told the story as follows:

“Layercake levels looks to transform a derelict and decaying building into a thriving new environment for wildflife to grow. Wildflower meadows incorporated onto the existing structure will encourage biodiversity to convert this landscape into a haven for new wildlife habitats.


Visitors will be able to experience the naturally reclaimed building through car park ramps circling the building, creating an overtaken park in which wildlife and humans share a common space.”
