Video: The Sukkah City Project: NYC 2010

Sukkah City was an international design competition to re-imagine this ancient phenomenon, develop new methods of material practice and parametric design, and propose radical possibilities for traditional design constraints in a contemporary urban site. The designs of 12 were constructed in Union Square Park and on display from September 19-20, 2010.

SWTICHMODERN, always in search of good design wherever it can be found, videotaped the installations for our blog. The project was successful from concept to construction, demonstrating that remarkable design need not always be realized by high-tech manufacturing.

One structure will be chosen by to stand and delight throughout the week-long festival of Sukkot as the People's Choice Sukkah of New York City. The process and results of the competition, along with construction documentation and critical essays, will be published in the forthcoming book Sukkah City: Radically Temporary Architecture for the Next Three Thousand Years. Check back here for updates.
