Ben took part in the inaugural MADE labs program in Syracusa, Sicily in Summer 2017. The program was an illuminating series of talks, lectures and workshops questioning how sites such as Ortygia Island can maintain a vibrant and colourful life once they become UNESCO world heritage sites. The week culminated in a tribute to Jasper Maskelyne and The Magic Gang with Arquitectura G, where a decoy of Ortygia Island was paraded around the island, and ceremonially plunged into the sea.
