Sukka City. NY 2010

I just LOVE this competition for a innovative Sukka design that will "reimagine and renew" the Sukka. It also has a wonderful summary of the Laws of Sukka here (scroll down).
The truth is that it is the experiential process of building and living in our Sukka for 7 days - a weekly cycle - that is the TRUE renewal and reimagining of the Sukka. It happens in our minds and souls anew each year, as I have written here and here. (and I cannot WAIT for the end of Yom Kippur to get to work on building it... and annual highlight.) And yet, the whole concept of fusing contemporary design and tradition/halakha is exhilarating.

Check it out!
