The League Prize, an annual competition that asks young designers to respond to a given theme, has marked an important milestone in many architects’ careers since it was established in 1981. Winners showcase their work through a lecture series and exhibition.

Bureau Spectacular won a 2012 award.

Jimenez Lai founded Bureau Spectacular in 2008 in Chicago. The office considers design, representation, theory, criticism, history, and taste through the medium of the cartoon. These narratives then swerve into the physical world through architectural installations, models, and small buildings.

In this video, Lai discusses his work as part of the League Prize lecture series.
