Sukkahville

Sukkahville is a competition which invites architects, artists and students to design and build sukkahs which the Kehilla Residential Programme will use to publicize the need for permanent affordable housing in the Jewish community. Sukkahville is inspired by Sukkah City New York 2010, which was solely a design competition. Unlike the Sukkah City, we intend to use the Sukkah, a symbol of temporary housing, for a social purpose, to bring the community’s attention to the need for affordable housing. A high profile jury will select the successful designs to be constructed and displayed for viewing just before Sukkot. The winning proponents will receive stipends to cover the cost of construction materials. Toronto’s first Sukkahville event will be held on the Sherman Campus on October 11 and 12, 2011. Funding is being sought to plan and promote the second and third annual events.
