Folly Comes to Fruition?
the point at which a plan or project is realized.
So this is obviously crazy to post...why purposefully jinx yourself? But then you must ask, 'can you jinx an person that isn't superstitious?' I. Think. Not.
Thrasher Works has been asked to look further into our Folly designs so it may serve as a multifunctional backyard structure for a local couple here in Dallas. The proposed program is to provide a porch for backyard enjoyment, a shop, and a small garage for lawn equipment and motorcycles. Super exciting, right?
Design approach: represent the three program elements by featuring three distinct structures uncoiling.
At first, this tried to take on an vertical uncoiling effect which really just threw the whole thing off into a over powering mess. We came to the conclusion that the follies needed to be offset horizontally offering additional inlets for light and circulation.
Of course, I'm partial and tend to think it's perfect. But even I realize it's all a process...one step at a time, right? This is definitely a project I look forward to working on and getting right.
Next up, Folly-Turned-Weekend Home. Minimal and sleek. I wonder how well Bart can pull off concrete that is as smooth as butter?
