A project by Mariana Ibañez and Simon Kim of IK Studio
May 17–August 30, 2015
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 Mariana Ibañez and Simon Kim’s installation Torqueing Spheres, the 2015 winner of Folly.
Socrates Sculpture Park and The Architectural League launched the annual Folly Program in 2012 to explore the intersections and divergences between architecture and sculpture. Through an annual juried competition, the program creates an opportunity for one emerging architect or designer to build a project in an urban, public realm.
