Italian architecture firm Pelizzi Architettura designed the Sukkarboard, a temporary, lightweight shelter made from cardboard boxes and newspaper. Constructed using paper mache techniques for the weeklong Jewish festival of Sukkot, the blocky structure explores the ever-changing relationships between light and shadow; material and void; and presence and absence. The design placed first in the 2014 SukkahPDX , an outside design competition hosted by the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education in Portland, Oregon. + Pelizzi Architettura The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
