Carlos Jiménez: buildings
Rice University School of Architecture, Nov 15, 1996 - Architecture - 136 pages
This is the first monograph published in the United States on Carlos Jimenez, whose work has been linked to the new wave of Spanish architects as well as to Latin American architects such as Luis Barragan. Jimenez's buildings are known for their purity of form, use of bold color, and sophisticated ordering of spaces. His simple geometries allow light to define and animate his otherwise tranquil interiors. This monograph presents eight of the architect's most stunning projects, including the headquarters for the Houston Fine Arts Press, the new Spencer Studio Art Building at Williams College in Massachusetts, the Central Administration Building of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and Jimenez's own house and studio complex. Richly illustrated throughout with photographs, plans, and drawings, the book includes an introduction by Rafael Moneo, an essay by historian Stephen Fox, and a postscript by Lars Lerup, as well as complete project documentation.
