Folly for the Noorderzonfestval Groningen (NL)
“A park landscaped in English style, such as the Noorderplantsoen, should certainly contain a folly. Such bizarre products of the imagination without a tangible function were highly popular in Romantic times and in the days of English landscaped parks.
The design duo Huting and De Hoop have designed a similar type of exceptional park construction for the Noorderzon – a modern folly for a modern park. Although this folly does not have a particular function, it does have a use. Whether you sit in it or climb in it, come and discover the possibilities of this unique construction and let you and your imagination be transported.” (text: CBK)
