Ryerson University has been invited to participate in Kehilla Residential Programme’s Sukkahville 2016 Design Competition and Exhibition. Ryerson’s Design Fabrication Zone (DFZ) is calling for Interior Design and Architecture students (undergraduate or graduate) interested in joining a Ryerson DFZ team that will design and build a modular Sukkah. The Sukkah will be displayed at Toronto’s Design Exchange from September 22nd to September 25th.

Teams will be awarded a stipend of $5,000 CAD to be used for construction, transportation and any other building costs. In addition, the winning team will receive a $1,800 cash prize. The winner will be announced Thursday, September 22, 2016 at 7:00pm at an Awards Ceremony & Panel Discussion on the opening evening of the exhibition. Confirmed Jury participants include Paul Rowan of Umbra, The Design Exchange’s Shauna Levy and local architecture critic John Bentley Mays.

This is the third year that Ryerson has participated in the Sukkahville Competition. Last year, three DFZ teams from Ryerson’s Department of Architecture won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, and in 2014, a team of Architecture students won 1st place.

If you are interested in becoming a member of this year’s DFZ Sukkahville team, please email [email protected] before May 31st, 2016.
