Artist Andrew Salomone has a new take on the traditional gingerbread house:

Abandonded Gingerbread House Building Sites is a site-specific project I made for my show, everything is as it seems to be, at The Space in Cork City [Ireland].

When the global economy unravelled last year the Irish countryside was left with a lot of empty, unsold, and unfinished housing estates. This holiday season I thought it would be nice to celebrate these unique landscapes by making them into picturesque gingerbread-house decorations that will rot and eventually be thrown out much like the unfinished housing estates themselves.
