Torqueing Spheres at Socrates Sculpture Park

May 17, 2015 – August 30, 2015

OPENING: MAY 17, 2015 (3:00 PM – 6:00 PM)

ARTISTS: IK STUDIO

Socrates Sculpture Park and The Architectural League of New York are pleased to announce the winning proposal for the 2015 Folly Program – an annual juried competition targeted to early career architects and designers.

Cambridge and Philadelphia-based firm IK Studio won this year’s competition with their innovative proposal, Torqueing Spheres, which transforms a series of intertwining, sculpted forms into a meandering curved folly that encourages social interaction. IK Studio’s proposal was selected from 126 submissions from around the world and reviewed by a jury of five esteemed architects and artists, including David Benjamin (The Living); Leslie Gill (Architect);Sheila Kennedy (Kennedy & Violich Architecture); Alyson Shotz (Artist); and Socrates Sculpture Park Executive Director John Hatfield.
