Oh, that house is everywhere now!

I just bought a Finnish book called "Arkkitehtien piparkakkutalot", which means "Gingerbread houses of architects". There are both existent and unfulfilled buildings from Finnish castles to this Casa Malaparte first as a photo or drawing, then as a gingerbread house. In the end of the book there are some tips and the patterns, how to make these eatable houses. (http://tammi.fi/kirjat/ISBN/

I believe I'm going to make Taj Mahal this year. :D

I love this house. I first saw it in a spread in Domino magazine, cinema and decorating. Brilliant.
