English: A folly is a building constructed strictly as a decoration, having none of the usual purposes of housing or sheltering associated with a conventional structure. They originated as decorative accents in parks and estates. "Folly" is used in the sense of fun or light-heartedness, not in the sense of something ill-advised.
Français : Une fabrique est une petite construction à vocation ornementale prenant part à une composition paysagère au sein d'un parc ou d'un jardin.
