2011: Santa Bell Beach
Creative confections are always part of the holiday season at RLPS Architects, and the 2011 creative twist gave new meaning to “chillin’ at the beach.” Masses of snowmen enjoyed a frosty beach holiday at a graham cracker boardwalk and midway pier with an eclectic collection of gingerbread shops and sand-colored sugar shores bustling with activity, including a group of “Occupy Boardwalk” snowmen. Drawing from visions of summer boardwalk scenes, employees, their families and friends spent hours constructing gingerbread, candy, crackers and pasta into pizza shops, souvenir stores and even a tattoo parlor. The lively shore featured snowmen enjoying the beach and boardwalk with a rooftop miniature golf course, beach volleyball and a moving carousel and Ferris wheel.
