Dr Benny Kuriakose bags the Trends Excellence Editors Choice for Exemplary Body of Work award for his exceptional work in regard to conservation, sustainable and vernacular architecture and designs. A brief outline of his career and works is provided in this article. In his desire to be a creative person, Benny has taken many different roads and interpreted his mentor Laurie Baker's worldview numerous times.
His strict adherence to the universal principles of architecture can be seen in the range of his work- in individual houses, resorts and institutional projects, in the Dakshinachitra project in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, in the rehabilitation of disaster sites at Nagapattinam, Bhuj or Lattur and in the Muziris Heritage Project in Kerala. “I don’t have a formal degree in architecture. I met the legendary architect Laurie Baker accidentally at one of his sites and that’s where it began. I think my success had been that I design for people,” says Kuriakose.
