Folly/Function is an annual juried competition engaging architects to design and build a project for public use at Socrates Sculpture Park. The 2019 competition asked entrants to design and fabricate an entry kiosk located at the park entrance.
Objects In Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear by School Studio is the winning proposal for the seventh annual Folly/Function, a juried design/build competition for architects and designers. The project, conceived by Brooklyn-based firm School Studio, is a mirrored cube kiosk with sliding wall-doors and applied signage.
School Studio’s innovative design maintains the functional intent of a kiosk—to impart information—while blending into the landscape creating a paradox of visibility and invisibility. The structure’s mirrored surfaces reflect the sky, landscape, and sculptures, while its steel armature echoes the Park’s industrial roots. Sliding wall extensions reveal the interior and allow for multiple structural configurations.
