While building a Sukkah is an annual Jewish ritual, it embodies many universal themes related to the nature of dwelling: new/old, open/closed, temporary/permanent. The challenge is to explore what a contemporary Sukkah can be reflecting ancient teachings while exhibiting a concept of space and place which is both modern and rooted.
