The 12 winners of the Sukkah City design competition have been announced, with their designs to be built at the Gowanus Studio Space in Brooklyn and then moved to Union Square in Manhattan for public display on Sunday, September 19 and Monday, September 20.
"We asked some of the most creative people in the world to re-imagine and renew the sukkah, and the results are truly dazzling and inspiring," said Roger Bennett and Joshua Foer of the cultural organization Reboot, which organized the competition in collaboration with the American Institute of Architects, Architizer, Dwell, the Union Square Partnership, and the City's Department of Parks & Recreation. "This humble structure will come to life in twelve new forms that are bold, beautiful and quintessentially New York."
