Chicago Sukkah Expo ’16 is a national design competition that challenges entrants to re-imagine the sukkah. The sukkah, a temporary structure that is built during the Jewish festival of Sukkot, commemorates the 40 years that Jews spent wandering the desert (Leviticus 23:42-43). The impermanence of the sukkah reminds us that many community members do not have adequate shelter and are threatened by the dangers of homelessness. We must devote attention and support those without a permanent home.
Invitations are extended to all architects, builders, artists, planners, interior designers, and students in related disciplines to design and build a sukkah. Entry fees are $48 + fee for professional entrants and $24 + fee for students.
Our esteemed jury will select eight winning renderings which participants will then develop into models for an exposition at Anshe Emet Synagogue in September and October 2016. First place prize is $3,000. The models will be auctioned off and net proceeds from the premiere reception will benefit The ARK.
