Organized by The Architectural League of New York and Socrates Sculpture Park, Folly 2017 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, associate professors Jude LeBlanc and Russel Gentry, along with gradudate student Matt Peterka took on the challenge and submitted their "Kite/Folly" proposal to be considered in the design/build competion. Although their abstract did not win, the three were premiated and their submission will soon be highlighted on the The Architectural League of New York's website, in addition to being featured in the upcoming 2017 Socrates Sculpture Park publication

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. Following the precedent of the 2016 competition, Folly 2017 fuses form with utility, merging FOLLY and FUNCTION.
