This week we had the opportunity to attend Sukkah in the City. Sukkah City is an international design competition challenging designers, artists and architects to newly reinterpret the structures while following traditional rules. The contest is put on by Jewish cultural organization Reboot. Contestants were encouraged to "Propose radical possibilities for traditional design constraints in a contemporary urban site." With the help of a rabbinical consultant consultant architects created some unusual and interesting Sukkah's .Reboot Executive Director Lou Cove, described the response to the competition as "amazing from the start." Reboot received 1,700 registrations on their website to enter the competition, and from that 600 designs were submitted from 70 countries, of which 12 were selected to be built in Brooklyn and brought to Union Square on the weekend. RACTURED BUBBLE: The winning entry in the The Sukkah City international design competition. The sukkah was designed by Long Island City architects Henry Grosman and Babek Bryan.
