Sukkah City

I was doing some research on sukkahs today, which are the temporary ceremonial structures used during the Jewish harvest festival of Sukkot, and stumbled upon the Sukkah City site. In 2010, this sukkah design and building contest was held in NYC where contest winners were able to display their fully realized sukkah’s in Union Square for a few days. Here are some photographs of the resulting structures and also reflections on the event:

Great example of a sacred space project that encourages the creative re-imagining of traditional practices and also that fosters community engagement.
