Submission Design of a Sukkah

The Sukkah, a temporary structure that is built during the Jewish festival of Sukkot commemorates the 40 years spent wandering the desert
Chicago Sukkah Expo ’16 is a national design competition that challenges entrants to re-imagine the Sukkah. The sukkah, a temporary structure that is built during the Jewish festival of Sukkot commemorates the 40 years that Jews spent wandering the desert (Leviticus 23:42-43). The impermanence of the sukkah reminds us that many community members do not have adequate shelter and are threatened by the dangers of homelessness. We must devote attention and support those without a permanent home.

Chicago Sukkah Expo ’16 asks entrants to re-interpret the ancient phenomenon of the Sukkah and develop new methods of material practice and parametric design.
-Creativity
-Originality, coherence and clarity of the design
-Constructability and interesting material choice
