OOAA receives recognition from the Architectural League of New York


POLY-FUNCTIONAL-FOLLY explores the relationship between material, geometry and methods of aggregation for timber construction. The folly ‘functions’ as an investigation into the possibilities of the aggregation propositions of a single module of timber, to specify the spatial and tectonic condition of a constructed object.

The project focuses on how the manipulation of the stacking methodology transforms the quality and nature of the structure, to create multiplicity of readings and simultaneity of functions for the folly.


Organized by the Architectural League of New York and Socrates Sculpture Park, Folly 2016 is a design/build competition that explores the relationship between art and architecture, while also durably addressing and improving the conditions at Socrates Sculpture Park.

This year, marking the program´s fifth and the park thirtieth anniversaries, Folly 2016 builds on past projects to fuse form and utility, or FOLLY with FUNCTION.

Socrates Sculpture Park and the Architectural League launched the annual Folly program in 2012 to create an opportunity for emerging architects and designers to build projects in the public realm and explore the boundaries between architecture and sculpture.
