In Tension

The sukkah is conceived as a simple kit-of-parts easily transported by a single person. Using the principles of tensegrity allows for a light weight structure that offers adequate space for rest, feast and contemplation. The net that wraps the structure creates a soft veil, transparent enough to be inclusive, but dense enough to create a sense of being. One enters the sukkah by lifting one corner of the net. At the top, the net dips down to become the carrier of branches and leafs offering shade and a natural touch. The seemingly magic organization of forces in space gives the sukkah a cosmic atmosphere.
