Socrates Sculpture Park and The Architectural League invite emerging architects and designers to apply for Folly, a design/build studio residency from March-May 2014 leading to an exhibition at Socrates opening in early May 2014.
Socrates and the League welcome proposals for large-scale projects and installations that explore contemporary interpretations of the architectural folly. Especially popular among the Romantics of the 18th and 19th centuries, architectural follies are structures that often have no discernible purpose and are placed within a garden or landscape. This residency was established in 2011 to explore the intersections between architecture and sculpture, and the increasing overlaps in references, concepts, and techniques between the two disciplines.
Submission Deadline: Tuesday, January 7, 2014.
