Please Don't Eat This City Built From 500,000 Sugar Cubes

Successfully extending the woefully short candy and gingerbread architecture season, this appropriately-titled Sugar Metropolis project out of Northern Ireland aims to promote sugar cube construction as a worldwide art form. Developed via Kickstarter by a couple of professional sculptors named Brendan Jamison and Mark Revels, the goal is to travel from city to city providing communities with some open space and upwards of 500,000 sugary building blocks. Amateur architects can create their own designs or build upon existing buildings, which so far looks like it has yielded some pretty impressive projects—including delicate skyscrapers, a perfectly formed colosseum, and a waist-high turreted fortress.
