3 volumes housed in an embossed linen slipcaseThe Triple Folly recounts the rich collaboration between artist Thomas Demand, architects Caruso St John, and textile makers Kvadrat which produced an astonishing new pavilion for Kvadrat’s Ebeltoft campus. The basis of the building is three found paper objects – a legal pad, a paper plate, and a soda jerk hat – which Demand brought to Caruso St John with the simple question ‘Can you make this into architecture?’ In response, the architects created a sculptural tripartite folly, a kind of inhabitable still life poised on the area’s rolling seaside hillocks, encompassing a meeting room, a kitchen, and a flexible living space which holds an artwork by the artist Rosemarie Trockel.This comprehensive three-volume publication presents the evolution of the pavilion’s conception and construction through this meeting of disciplines. Thomas Demand’s original development sketchbooks are presented in facsimile across two extensive volumes. A third volume presents images of the completed buildings alongside con-versations with Frank Gehry, Denise Scott Brown, Adam Caruso, Valerie Verhack, Anders Byriel, and Emilie Appercé.3 volumes housed in an embossed linen slipcase, 31 x 23.7cmVolume 1: Silkscreen printed buckram hardcover, 168 pages Japanese fold with 9 pieces of ephemera glued in by handVolume 2: Silkscreen printed buckram hardcover, 160 pages Japanese fold with 11 pieces of ephemera glued in by handVolume 3: Embossed linen hardcover with tipped-in image, 72 pages
