Shelter of Four // Sukkahville 2015 @ Nathan Phillips Square
2nd Place & People's Choice Award
This project was created for Sukkahville 2015, an international design competition that challenges entrants to re-imagine the traditional structure of the sukkah for the Jewish festival of Sukkot. The structure is made up of over forty panels of CNC-milled plywood, supported by three main spines and slotted into a single foot piece. The result is a gently undulating exterior contrasted by a carved, cave-like interior. The delicate pattern of perforations in each layer is based on the arba’a minim - four species of plants mentioned in the Torah in relation to Sukkot.
