In parallel with his theoretical research concerning epistemological and ethical aspects of design, Ben also conducts practice based explorations through the medium of drawing, using rotring pens to create often densely worked orthogonal drawings.
Taking the constructivist epistemological idea that we are part of, rather than apart from, the world we observe as a point of departure, Ben has understood this as being also a spatial idea (and indeed being both an epistemological idea with spatial consequences and a spatial idea with epistemological consequences). Through his distinctive drawings Ben has proposed small design projects for everyday situations, some at the scale of domestic objects, others for small architectural constructions, as well as more abstract 1:1 work. Through these Ben has explored ways in which architecture can prompt us to explore epistemological questions through reflecting on our presence within the world.
This has led, in Ben's current work, to a rethinking of the architectural theme of place, which is usually associated with phenomenology, in constructivist terms.
