PHX ARCHITECTURE FORUM: BENJAMIN HALL DESIGN + BUILD
A continuation of our community series in collaboration with Wendell Burnette Architects. April's event will feature Benjamin Hall of Benjamin Hall Design + Build. This young Phoenix-based design practice is committed to the lost profession of master builder, one who can perform both design and construction tasks. He received the AIA Arizona 2015 Distinguished Building Honor Award for White Stone Studios, an experimental luxury complex with six units that each measure just 468 square feet.
Please drop in for a drink, a bite to eat, and some lively conversation!
The PHX Architecture Forum seeks to engage the public in an ongoing dialogue about architecture and design in the Phoenix area. We think of architecture as a constructed conversation between people, things, and time; and the Forum as a place where people interested in our built environment can meet and socialize.
Location: For The People | 5102 North Central Ave | Phoenix
