ZHA wins “Tastiest Bake” at the Great Architectural Bake-Off 2018

ZHA was awarded “Tastiest Bake” at the Great Architectural Bake-Off 2018 organised by WATG for London Festival Of Architecture

Modelled on ZHA’s design for the London Aquatics Centre, the cake combined elements of sweet, savoury and sour in a fine sponge cake with lemon elderflower, peppermint and raspberries, while the centre’s landscaping was formed from dark chocolate cake frosted with Guinness flavoured buttercream and marbled fondant. Candy Mechanics CNC-milled chocolate echoed the steel trusses of the Aquatics Centre’s roof.
