On Tuesday, March 10, 2015, Jimenez Lai presents the bulthaup lecture at the Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design at the University of Toronto at 6:30pm.
Lai will feature a series of works from his Los Angeles-based practice Bureau Spectacular. From comic books to furniture, “super-furnitures,” small buildings and large building proposals, this lecture will look at the lighthearted side of life—and a full engagement of architectural theory and experimentation.
Lai is the Leader of Bureau Spectacular and also teaches at UCLA. Previously, Lai lived and worked in a desert shelter at Taliesin and resided in a shipping container at Atelier Van Lieshout on the piers of Rotterdam. In 2012, Lai won the Architectural League Prize for Young Architects. His installation, White Elephant, is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Lai is the winner of the inaugural Millenium BCP Lisbon Triennale Début Award. In 2014, he designed and curated the Taiwan Pavilion for the 2014 Venice Architectural Biennale.
The lecture takes place in Room 103, 230 College Street in Toronto.
