Design a Folly for NYC’s Socrates Sculpture Park and You Could Win $5000 to Realize Your ProjectJanuary 16th, 2012

Socrates Sculpture Park and the Architectural League are now inviting emerging architects and designers to apply for the opportunity to build and exhibit a full-scale project around the theme of an architectural folly. This residency was established to explore the intersections between architecture and sculpture, and the increasing overlaps in references, materials, and building techniques between the two disciplines. By definition a fanciful architectural form built to lend interest to a view or serve as a conversation piece, the folly is an ideal launching point for a dynamic exploration of architectural form and its relationship to sculpture. A jury of architects, artists, curators, and arts administrators will select a single project to realize at full-scale within the grounds of Socrates Sculpture Park. The recipient will receive a $5,000 production grant to fund the project, as well as full access to the resources and fabrication facilities of Socrates Sculpture Park’s NYC outdoor studio during a two-month residency at the Park, beginning in May 2012. The completed project will open to the public in July 2012. Submit your ideas by January 16, 2012 for consideration.
