Overview

The Seedling Sukkah is a pop-up pavilion in Downtown Detroit’s Capitol Park. The project offers space for communion with the natural elements within a busting city center. It is built entirely of locally fabricated, laser-cut plywood parts, drawing upon natural patterns to create a unique urban landmark. It was a winner of Detroit’s largest international design competition and was built as part of Detroit Month of Design, 2018.

Goals

This project was commissioned by the South Street Temple and the city of Detroit.
