Fractured Bubble in Union Square NYC


Seldom do you so see something so organic located amongst the hustle and bustle of the city...but if you are lucky to catch a glimpse of this sukkot or temporary dwelling you are forced to slow down for just a moment to observe it's natural stark calm beauty set against the noise and commotion of the city. The winning design submission from architects Henry Grosman and Babek Bryan beat out 600 other designs from over 70 countries. During the exodus from Egypt over 3000 years ago, Israelites dwelled in temporary shelters known as Sukkot...to pay homage, Fractured Bubble was erected from plywood, marsh grass and twine. Set against the noise and commotion of the city it offers a moment of still and peace that often is missed in city life.
