Gentrification: more and more people leave their home town and move to metropolises to take root in big apartment buildings

“I am home now– on feeling at home or being rootless” is the theme of this year’s gingerbread house exhibition at the Swedish Museum of Architecture in Stockholm. Home can be a safe haven to which you return each day, a place far away or a longing for something unachievable. What is home to you? Under three catagories – ‘children under the age of 12’, ‘architects and professional bakers’ and ‘everyone else who bakes’ – people could submit their contributions. Here some of my favourite pieces.

The 'architect' of this house was inspired by the abandoned homes of deported Roma in France

All the entries will be displayed at the Museum of Architecture from 1 December 2010 til 9 January 2011. Between 1 December and 10 December the public can vote for their favourite entry either at the museum or here.

From the castle to the shed, from first to fifth hand – the packing case has been home for all of us once
