Ephemeral NOW - Live Example - Ultra reclaimed and not by coincidence

I could not find a better example of Ephemeral Architecture but to share my observation
of these soon to be sukkot in the dunes of holon . All built by local kids seeking reclaimed material to 

complete their projects.

Some Context: Sukkot is a biblical holiday celebrated on the 15th day of the month of Tishrei (late September to late October) The Hebrew word sukkĊt is the plural of sukkah, "booth or tabernacle", which is a walled structure covered with skhakh (plant material such as leafy tree overgrowth or palm leaves). The sukkah is intended as a reminiscence of the type of fragile dwellings in which the Israelites dwelt during their 40 years travel in the desert after the Exodus from slavery in Egypt. Throughout the holiday meals are eaten inside the sukkah and many sleep there as well.
