The Architectural League and Socrates Sculpture Park invite emerging architects and designers to submit proposals for Folly, an annual design/build studio program during March and April 2015 leading to a public exhibition at Socrates opening in early May 2015.
This program was established in 2011 to explore the intersections and divergences between architecture and sculpture through the framework of an architectural folly. The program includes the design, realization, and exhibition of a public work, including a two-month on-site studio residency. Now in its fourth year, the program seeks to more deeply examine the concept of folly while continuing to challenge architects to create a fully realized public space.
One project will be chosen. The recipient will receive a $5,000 production grant towards realizing that proposed project. The recipient will also have full access to the resources and fabrication facilities of Socrates Sculpture Park’s outdoor studio during a two-month residency at the park, beginning in March 2015. The completed project is scheduled to open to the public in early May 2015. The project will be documented with a digital catalog, and online at archleague.org.
