Designed around the competition theme of Shmittah, the sabbatical year, this sukkah (temporary shelter) reflects the dynamic between tension and release central to the Jewish experience. An impermanent shelter that both shades from the sun yet allows us to see the stars and feel the rain, the sukkah asks us to physically experience this liminal state of vulnerability. Shaped after the letter Tet, its 36 bamboo posts reflect both a complete cycle and the numerical for double-"Chai," the Hebrew word for life.
