SUKKAHVILLE 2015

-COMPETITION-

The Sukkah is a modest structure, offering minimal protection against the harsher elements of Autumn. In the context of the desert, the Sukkah symbolizes the vulnerability of the Jews in a hostile world. At the same time, the Sukkah reminds Jews of their perpetual covenant amongst themselves as a people, and with God. This symbolic sukkah is made of simple elements that can inspire reflection: through the combination of this simple materials, rope Sukkah creates an articulated form and space while nestling itself into the urban landscape.

The association of skin–rope and structure–wood frame merge to form a room where autumnal winds are filtered by the see-through shell that allow the passage of light. The structure is made up of elements that are repeated: five wooden frames mainly differing for rotation, creating a game of surfaces. A single strand of rope is placed in the four spaces between the frames, forming a seam. At the same time they symbolize the four decades in the desert and the liberation from slavery in Egypt to return after a long time to free life in the land of Israel to join again the Jewish fate.

According to the solemn tradition of Sukkoh festival,the roof is covered by willow leafs that represent the mouth and increases the shadow, and the etrog fruit (citron) in the racks that represents the heart and increases the sense of enclosure to the sukkah.
