a momentary vignette
folly
August 2

A folly is often thought of as an extravagant structure built as a conversation piece or a sculptural element in the landscape, typically without any a functional purpose. A noted collection of follies designed by architect Bernard Tschumi, is located in Parc de la Villette near Paris. The brightly painted red steel follies are organized on a rigorous grid throughout a park, constructed for the 1989 bicentennial of the French Revolution.
