Best Small Project Winner: Davidson Rafailidis, USA – He, She & It, Buffalo, USA
Project excerpt: “He, She & It is a collection of three distinct buildings for three different spatial needs, collaged into a single structure. The 1500 sq ft building houses work spaces for a painter, a ceramist/silversmith, and a greenhouse. Grouped to form a cluster of three mono-pitched sheds, each space offers a unique atmosphere which differs radically from the others and reflects their respective uses. ‘Built with modest, low-cost materials and construction methods, the spatial arrangement offers a complex set of experiences that are rich at the spatial and textural scales; the interior world of the workspace draws the users in and provides them with a retreat from the outside world,’ says Davidson Rafailidis.
