Chicago Sukkah Design Festival, inaugural edition
We are thrilled to launch the first annual Chicago Sukkah Design Festival, a public art and architecture festival that we’ve been working to launch for many months, alongside a constellation of amazing partners, collaborators, and neighbors in Chicago’s North Lawndale neighborhood. The Chicago Sukkah Design Festival pairs North Lawndale community organizations with diverse architectural designers to design and build sukkahs (small huts constructed outdoors for the Jewish holiday of Sukkot) that amplify civic life. Join us October 9–16 at the Lawndale Pop-Up Spot for a vibrant schedule of public programming, collective futuring, and community celebration! Read and listen to more about the Festival on WBEZ's 'What's That Building?' segment.
