NewSchool Sukkah Project Featured in San Diego Jewish Journal

How students became the designers of one of the coolest Jewish structures in San Diego County

NewSchool students, along with architecture professor Chuck Crawford, were recently featured in the December issue of the San Diego Jewish Journal for the Leichtag Foundation’s commissioned project to design and construct a sukkah, which is a temporary shelter covered in natural materials.

October’s Sukkot Festival was the third year that NewSchool students and faculty led the sukkah design project, which gave students the opportunity for hands-on learning around designing a structure that would appeal to the public; creating a construction schedule; identifying a list of needed materials; and handling administrative details that go into a building project of this size.

To read the full article and learn more about the project that has involved more than 30 students over the past three years, check out the current issue of San Diego Jewish Journal (article on page 38).
