sketchurbanadd.JPGA group of local architects took their building skills to an unusual construction site this week: their own kitchens.
Mark Ward and Jim Brown spent 50 hours on their snow-capped gingerbread rowhouses, featuring graham-cracker roofs, sugar-cone trees, gummy bears and tons of powdered sugar. They said they approached the project the same way they design a building. (You can see their blueprint sketch on the photo.)
“Cooking and architecture are closely related. Food is not just about the taste, it’s about the presentation,” said Ward, of Urbanadd, one of the eight firms taking part in the fundraiser event sponsored by Logan’s Hammer, a Fremont-based contractor.
