Whenever we witness art in a building, we are aware of an energy contained by it.” – Arthur Erickson

The Ketubot in this category recognise the relationship between man and the built environment in which we dwell. Shelters in their distilled essence protect us from the elements, yet throughout history man has sought to embellish buildings with ornamental detail and to design them beautifully so that the experience of immersion within them is enhanced.

These Ketubot pay homage to architectural sites and structures of specific significance in the Jewish Faith and beyond. Here Great Synagogues, the Western wall, temporary dwellings (such as Succahs) provide compositional derivatives and devices for the realisation of the design.
