This year's project was People's Bank, the 1962 Mid-Century Modern building that is to be moved across the Rupp Arena parking lot to save it from demolition. The building's signature turquoise glazed brick was rendered in Powermint Tic Tacs. The window glass was poured from melted crystals of isomalt, a sugar substitute. The sidewalk is Graham crackers and the grass is colored coconut.
