Kilo Dialogues presents
Talks by the campfire: Jimenez Lai in conversation with Aurel von Richthofen

This month Kilo dialogues hosts an open dialogue with one of the most obscure, curious, multidisciplinary, architect-academic-artist-cartoonist-curator of the international design scene.

Jimenez Lai is the founder and Leader of Bureau Spectacular and a faculty member 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 the past years, Lai built numerous installations as well as being widely exhibited and published around the world.
His first manifesto, a graphic novel on architecture and urbanism, Citizens of No Place, was published by Princeton Architectural Press with a grant from the Graham Foundation. Draft II of this book has been archived at the New Museum as a part of the show Younger Than Jesus.
In 2012, Lai became a winner of the Architectural League Prize for Young Architects. His installation, White Elephant, is in the permanent collection of MoMA in New York. Lai is the winner of the inaugural Millenium BCP Lisbon Triennale Début Award in 2013, and was the architect and curator of the Taiwan Pavilion at the 2014 Venice Architectural Biennale.

Born in Taiwan, naturalized in United States with one foot in Americas and one in Asia, Jimenez is in town next week and you can discover his work, Thursday, the 17th, in Kilo Lounge, during an open conversation led by Aurel von Richthofen, Module Coordinator at the Chair of Architecture and Construction at the Future Cities Laboratory Singapore.
