Architects from across the country converged on Washington University in St. Louis’ Danforth Campus Oct. 6 and 7 to install “Sukkah City STL 2014: Between Absence and Presence.”
Sponsored by St. Louis Hillel and the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, the design competition challenged participants to reimagine the traditional Jewish Sukkah — a small, temporary structure erected each fall during the weeklong festival of Sukkot — through the lens of contemporary art and architecture. Ten winning structures, located just south of the Ann W. Olin Women’s Building, remain on view through Sunday, Oct. 12.
