Is it folly to pursue an ideal?
Is it folly to contradict a pre-existing space or strive to resonate within a site?
If a folly has no utilitarian purpose, is it sculpture?
FOLLY 2015 encourages an exploration of architecture and sculpture in the context of these kinds of questions. The Call for Proposals is on now—participants have until January 12, 2015 to submit their concepts.
The 4th annual program is organized by The Architectural League and Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, New York, and it calls on designers and architects for proposals for full-scale projects and installations. In an effort to closely examine the concept of “folly,” participants will design a physical experience through the thoughtful use of space, material, and process. More details after the jump.
