Benjamin Garcia Saxe's âA Forest for a Moon Dazzler' won first prize in the private house category at World Architecture Festival (2010) held in Barcelona.
âThe architect addressed the practical and emotional needs of his mother's security by creating a home for her to occupy alone, while also satisfying his inventive curiosity with a new form of bamboo moucharabieh screen that responds to movement and light. In his narrative there was sincerity in how the character and needs of the client related to the final architectural outcome,' said the jury.
Benjamin will also be speaking about recent projects such as âContainers of Hope', will give an overview of his practice and will be taking questions.
Part of Parallel Horizons, showing at Stephen Lawrence Gallery until 28th February 2013.
