I have recently graduated with a masters in architecture with high distinction and currently teaching at the University of Western Australia and working on 'Augmented Australia', the australian exhibition at the Venice Biennale 2014, with the creative directors felix._Giles_Anderson+Goad.
My interests lie between a mixture of design fields; architecture, furniture, sculpture, film, photography and animation.
Throughout my degrees I have studied at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy. + University of Arizona, USA. Gaining work experience internationally as well as in Australia.
This year following my independent design research project 'A Funerary Paradigm' I was nominated for the RIBA presidents medal. And received 2nd place in a national competition for the AIA Colour Bond Steel Student biennale National Design Awards.

" The strength of Ben Juckes’s A Funerary Paradigm lies in its atmospheric, tectonic and material qualities. The concept rigorously negotiates notions of the contemporary cemetery with changing notions of death and sustainable development in a coastal ecosystem.
Structured around a processional experience, Juckes’s scheme crafts an architectural narrative out of ritual and creates a powerful tension between anonymous, personal and collective experiences. The architecture invites the viewer to partake in a journey of discovery, slowly revealing the layers, intricacies and complexities of death."

The prize is awarded annually to an architectural student from each of the two Schools of Architecture in Western Australia.
