Doban Architecture Sukkah

According to Jewish tradition, a sukkah is a temporary enclosure built for the week-long celebration of Sukkot. The roof is usually constructed out of tree branches and is decorated with autumnal harvest themes, symbolizing a natural wilderness shelter. During the celebration, the sukkah is used to eat and sleep, and as a place for peaceful relaxation.

Doban’s Brooklyn sukkah, constructed out of plywood, has a living roof made out of crab apple branches and a plant-covered wall. The temporary structure hosted nightly potluck dinners during the week-long holiday.

The sukkah will remain on the corner of Garfield Place and 8th Avenue until October 7th if you’d like to go check it out for yourself!
