Folly 2014 Opening
An installation by Austin + Mergold
Folly is a co-sponsored project by Socrates Sculpture Park and The Architectural League.
The Architectural League and Socrates Sculpture Park invite you to the opening of Austin + Mergold’s new installation SuralArk, the 2014 winner of Folly.
Folly is an annual competition co-sponsored by the League and Socrates, 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 conversation piece. Folly was established 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.
