Harvard's Graduate School of Design hosted a Sukkot tent design competition modeled after New York City's. The winners? "[A] team of design students from China: Tian Ren, Nick Gu, and Patchara Wongboosin. Their concept was to connect to the holiday of Sukkot by emulating the journey of the ancient Israelites from the bondage of Egypt to freedom. The entry of the sukkah is a narrow ramp that one must journey through to ascend to the main gathering space. The sukkah is constructed with standard wooden profiles of sectional framed structure. This tectonic modulation creates a long continuous wrapping screen which is the structure itself and allows for different degree of visual connection with the exterior." No word yet if there's a mom inside who wonders why you can't find a nice doctor to marry. [Wicked Local]
