In an effort to investigate the growing intersection between architecture and sculpture and the increasing overlaps in references, materials, and building techniques between the two disciplines, the League partnered with Socrates Sculpture Park to establish “Folly,” a competition to design and build a contemporary interpretation of an architectural folly at the sculpture park in Long Island City. This commission also occasioned a panel discussion and several presentations of work by a small group of current architects and designers.
