From his first buildings completed in Houston, Texas, in the 1980s and ’90s, which earned him international recognition, Carlos Jiménez’s architecture has evolved to address different scales and programmes.

Yet at the same time his vision has maintained an attention to context, interest in typological research, and a pursuit of total complicity with the client. Covering three decades of work, this monograph is illustrated with the architect’s sketches and photographs by Paul Hester. Starting from the Carlos Jiménez Studio, an ongoing project begun in 1983 and also the architect’s professional studio, all of the featured projects are in the United States, with many in Houston.
