Can buildings with a dark past be re-envisioned through something as harmless as a
cookie? Three architects thought so, creating a temporary bakery within the 4
kilometer-long walls of the former-Nazi Hotel Prora in RÃ¼gen, Germany. The austere,
geometric pattern of this building’s faÃ§ade was transcribed onto the sides of
shortbread. A once domineering edifice, laden with past sins, became the subject of a
sinful snack. All the elements of a working bakery were created using materials already
on-site. Broken bricks formed the walls of a new baking ovenâ€¦ massive pot lids
transformed into oven doorsâ€¦ wrought iron gates became oven grills. In the process, new
purpose breathed life (and the mouth-watering aroma of cookies) into a forgotten relic.
After completing their project the architects gave their design to a local bakery. The
Prora-cookie was born.
