Building as Prayer: Campus Sukkah

This project explores the connection between design, making, and prayer in the design and construction of a campus sukkah by architecture students, working in collaboration with the campus Hillel Jewish student organization.

Jury Comments:

The process of design and construction of this sukkah is modeled on prayer. This college-community project brought people of different faiths together, and the act of building was a very important part of the project: prayer in the context of community, and community amid the context of prayer, which is the essence of Hillel.
