WesSukkah Dedicated Oct. 3

WesSukkah, designed and built by Wesleyan’s Architecture II research-design-build studio, was dedicated Oct. 3 on Foss Hill. The sukkah is used by Wesleyan’s Jewish community during the festival of Sukkot. For eight days, students studied, socialized, mediated, ate, and occasionally slept in the religious structure.

WesSukkah was honored with a 2009 “Faith and Form” Award for art and architecture from the American Institute of Architects.
