    Jimenez recently returned from taliesin west (ariz) where he spent 5 months as al&d's third recipient of the howarth-wright graduate fellowship, allowing jimenez to pursue independant study on the work of FLW and to complete a major research project.
    jimenez presented "zero gravity residential community" to the taliesen community in late january & his model was exhibited in the phoenix art gallery as part of "art walk" in march.

    jimenez has a well-established reputation for huge models & way cool drawings, rounding out his first year with a 1:20 model of his library design & an accompanying comic strip illustrating the seedy life underneath the institution.

    jimenez is looking forward to a summer in Rotterdam, where he will be joining the Atelier Van Leishout for an internship- the next best thing to practicing architecture in outer space.
