SUKKAH DETROIT


PROJECT INFO

Type: Competition Entry
Status: Unbuilt


The sukkah is a temporary structure built adjacent to a dwelling unit during the Jewish harvest festival of Sukkot. Meals are taken in the shelter during the holiday, and there are many rules governing the design requirements of the shelter.  

Four Species of plant are used in a traditional waving ceremony to attest God’s mastery of all creation. Three branches from the palm, willow, and myrtle trees are bundled together and held in one hand; while the fruit of the citron tree is held in the other. Each species has specific symbolism, but the etrog, (or lemon) is the most precious and revered. Sukkah Citron recognizes the etrog as the heart of the ceremony by formalizing it through design.
