Folly 2012: Curtain

Out of print.

Folly is a design/build competition co-sponsored by The Architectural League and Socrates Sculpture Park, which invites emerging architects and designers to propose contemporary interpretations of the architectural folly, traditionally a fanciful, small-scale building or pavilion sited in a garden or landscape to frame a view or serve as a conversation piece.

This year’s Folly winners are Jerome W Haferd and K Brandt Knapp for their project, Curtain. As winners, they receive a grant and a two-month residency in Socrates Sculpture Park’s outdoor studio in addition to the opportunity to build the full-scale project for exhibition in the Park.

This publication includes a profile of Curtain and an interview with Jerome W Haferd and K Brandt Knapp.

Folly was established in 2011 by Socrates, in partnership with the League, to explore the intersections between architecture and sculpture and the increasing overlaps in references, materials, and building techniques between the two disciplines.
