Q & A with Ben Lefort

What do you do in your spare time?

Anything that has to do with sports, whether it’s playing or watching, especially when I’m with friends and family. Board games are another one of my favorite pastimes because they’re a great way to have fun with friends. And, from time to time, I like to learn new origami patterns.

Top 3 things to have if stranded on an island?

A soccer ball, not only to play with it but mostly to create my own version of Wilson from Cast Away. Chocolate, the most important thing obviously. And of course, a toothbrush, just because you’re on a desert island doesn’t mean you have to let yourself go. I probably won’t survive for long but at least I would enjoy my stay.

If you could only eat one dish for the rest of your life, what would it be?

As a chocolate lover it kind of breaks my heart but I must go with paella.

What made you interested in design / architecture / engineering?

I have always been interested in construction and building things. I think my passion for architecture really started when I was younger, watching my father and grandfather working on the restoration of a family home. I believe that this interest kept growing when I was a little older and started helping them with my brother, the type of restoration that is in perpetual evolution.
