This Whimsical Cage Redefines Public Space

Courtesy of Warren Techentin Architecture

Folly is a word not often used in architecture. By definition, ‘folly’ is a lack of good sense, or foolishness. And in the realm of architecture, folly is used to describe an extravagantly ornamented structure with no practical purpose. Yet gathering their inspiration from this word, Warren Techentin Architecture (WTARCH) have created and mounted a functional folly, appropriately named La Cage aux Folles (The Cage of Follies). Constructed of painted, steel tubes and installed at Materials & Applications, an exhibition centre in Los Angeles, La Cage aux Folles played host to an array of musical performances and lectures.

Interactivity is key in La Cage aux Folles, creating opportunities for visitors to play as they connect with the space. Users enter through a gently contoured opening in the cylinder-shaped cage, which guides them into a modest open air labyrinth of white steel. The space offers an intimate semi-enclosed atmosphere, providing gentle protection from the elements. The cage incorporates a variety of platforms to accommodate guests of all ages, and the La Cage aux Folles was designed based on the historic Mongolian Yurt, a protective tent developed in ancient times.

Warren Techentin Architecture is based out of Los Angeles, working primarily in residential housing. La Cage Aux Folles was made possible by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, The Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, Pacific Stainless, The Pasadena Art Alliance, and the Warhol Foundation.
