Artist Statement

This sukkah design strives to remove the strict definitions of architectural elements to create a structure that is both functional and beautiful. In this design the lines are blurred between walls and built-in features and framing elements become the structure’s decoration. While staying true to a traditional sukkah envelope, new innovative solutions have been implemented to allow for better use of the space, namely, furniture integrated into the structure. An interior plywood surround offers dining space, standing space, sitting space and sleeping space, all of which are traditional uses of a sukkah.
