Sukkahville is an international design competition that challenges entrants to re-imagine the Sukkah, a temporary structure built during the Jewish festival of Sukkot to commemorate the 40 years that Jews spent wandering the desert. Described as a symbolic wilderness shelter, it symbolizes the frailty and transience of life. The competition challenges architects, designers, artists and students to propose an innovative Sukkah design that balances the dichotomies of new/old, open/closed, temporary/permanent.
