Jimenez Lai speaks about the alternate worlds depicted by his comics, physical installations, models, and small buildings. He'll discuss the nature of his visual narratives and the ways in which they are fed by themes and issues such as representation, history, taste, theory, and storytelling. Jimenez Lai is the founder of the Chicago-based architecture firm Bureau Spectacular. Previously he worked for MOS, AVL, REX, and OMA/Rem Koolhaas in New York, Rotterdam, and Toronto. His monographic graphic novel/manifesto, Citizens of No Place, will be published by Princeton Architectural Press later this year with a grant from the Graham Foundation.
