Hansel and Gretel is a well-known fairy tale of German origin, recorded by the Brothers Grimm and published in 1812. Hansel and Gretel are a young brother and sister threatened by a cannibalistic hag living deep in the forest in a house constructed of cake and confectionery. The two children save their lives by outwitting her. My idea for an environment design inspired by the story, comes from an interesting piece of concept art by Donglu Yu. Donglu Yu takes the traditional concept of a gingerbread-style house and has created the concept for a vast enviroment hidden in the woods. Therefore, my idea would be to create an almost willy wonka-style, factory-like "kingdom" hidden in the woods that is used to entice the children to the wicked witch. I think it would only be right to stick to the traditional concept of sweets and food designs for the buildings and environment (however this could change after some more in-depth research), and this would give me a chance to get stuck in with some creative and quirky designs.
