What do you think Perrott’s Folly will be in the Future? Join us on the 28th of June to share your ideas through Print, Drawing and Live Architecture.
We will be constructing an 8ft abstract tower in the Folly’s Courtyard for you to add your ideas and see how it evolves across the day.
If you can’t make it on the day, we’d love to hear your thoughts on our Forum!
We are very excited to announce that we will be running a Live Architecture Project to coincide with Love Architecture Festival in June:
Dan Bagnall, an architecture graduate from Birmingham School of Architecture will be leading the project which considers future- and alternative uses of the Folly in three dimensions. A tower-like construction will be built in the folly courtyard for the event and we will be inviting you to add your thoughts and ideas to the structure. More details to follow.
We are launching a ‘Tower Tuesday’s’ post to coincide with the event, which will look at unusual towers and follies from history which challenge established methods of construction and typologies. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions!

A further installment will be published next week in the Birmingham Post.
Our thanks go to Jack Tasker from Associated Architects for his brilliant writing.

Simon and Duncan are no exception and have been composing works using sound collected on the drawing day.
We will be having an open day early next year in which their work will be premiered in addition to live composition in sound and light.
In the mean time, we’ve selected three of our favourite sound bites for your ears:
