When best-selling author Joshua Foer (Moonwalking With Einstein) built his first sukkah, a small hut that Jews build and dwell in every fall for the holiday of Sukkot, he wanted to move beyond the unimaginative, generic plywood boxes and canvas tents that have become status quo. So, he challenged 12 contemporary architects and designers to construct radical sukkahs in the heart of New York City as part of a design competition and exhibition known as Sukkah City. SUKKAH CITY follows the fate of 600 inspired designs and visionary architects from all over the world exploring the concepts of home in both Jewish and secular contexts. Rated: G.
