Succah by the Sea, an installation at Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2019 is an exciting collaboration with Shalom. Succah by the Sea reimagines a 3000 year old Jewish ritual and structure through a 21st century lens.

For over 3000 years, Jews around the world have left the comforts of their homes to eat and sleep in a temporary structure, during a week-long festival called Succot. The structure, called a succah, has a roof made from leaves or sticks, and impermanent walls. The philosophical ideas of the festival are ideas that modern Australian society are currently discussing - environmentalism, displacement, home and community.


In collaboration with Sculpture by the Sea, the idea for Succah by the Sea was developed by Shalom, a Sydney Jewish cultural organisation and inspired by Reboot’s New York project SukkahCity. Artistic Directors Office Feuerman, a Sydney-based design and research studio, selected six emerging architectural practices to reimagine the succah with a 21st century lens. Together they will form a succah village - a space for people to gather, congregate and contemplate the themes of this ancient ritual and its relevance to our world today.
