Sukkot: Seeking Shelter

On display at Jewish Museum London
-

To mark the festival of Sukkot, our ground floor Welcome Gallery will become transformed into the site of a new Sukkah installation. The Sukkah will offer an immersive space for reflection on the universal theme of shelter as well as providing a sociable and inviting space. A new commission from the celebrated design team of Alan Farlie and Tom Piper, the Sukkah installation takes its inspiration from the work of Japanese architect Shigeru Ban. Ban’s experiments building with cardboard and paper tubes, have provided low cost, environmentally friendly shelters for those who have lost their homes to wars and natural disasters. The installation encourages visitors to consider the idea of the sukkah in the context of the today’s world, where millions are in need of shelter.
