images of the 12 finalists for the city sukkah contest being held in new york (above), and details from repetition meets difference sukkah, shim sukkah fractured bubble sukkah  and blo puff (below).

the 12 winning structures will go up in union square on the 19th and 20th, one structure will be selected by popular vote, to stand during the week-long jewish holiday. new york magazine is officiating the people's choice award, you can vote on their site.

the rules of the contest corresponded to the traditional parameters for building a sukkah set out in jewish law.  the site has a beautifully designed page highlighting these rules. there are also photos and spaces, transparent ceilings and broken walls. i hope i get a chance to see them up in the city!
