Pomegranate Sukkah

Festival Pavilion

2019 — Built

Architectural Design, Exhibit and Installation Design

The Pomegranate Sukkah (Sukkat Rimon) is inspired by the bold color, warmth, and fertility of pomegranates, featuring an array of eighteen fresh pomegranates that adorn its open-air ceiling. Main entry to the sukkah welcomes visitors to pop their head under its outstretched walls, inviting playful engagement and immersion inside its light-infused perforated enclosure. Exhibiting a form that is both creaturely and homely and a skin that is both transparent and opaque, the Pomegranate Sukkah celebrates non-binary architectural identity.

This project was first proposed via the Sukkah x Detroit competition, hosted by Detroit's Downtown Syngagogue.
