“The Lencioni residence takes me to a fantasy world because of the curvilinear and unusual oval forms, woody brown and futuristic design,” said Fajardo.

NC Student Receives Award from American Institute of Architects

jfajardo-aiaic.jpgJenson Mark Fajardo was honored with the 2014 Student Citation Award from the American Institute of Architects, Inland California Chapter, at a special event held at the Riverside Art Museum on December 11.

The jury included architects and professors from all over southern California.

Fajardo based his citation on architect Arthur Dyson and his work with the Lencioni home.

“The Lencioni residence takes me to a fantasy world because of the curvilinear and unusual oval forms, woody brown and futuristic design,” said Fajardo.

Not only did he research this architect, but he managed to land a personal interview and tour with Deborah Lapp, owner of the Lencioni home, and Arthur Dyson.

“Meeting Lapp and Dyson was a dream come true,” he said. “This research project made me more aware, creative, efficient and knowledgeable.”

All of the images included in the article were personally rendered by Fajardo using pencil, pen, ink and various markers.

The AIAIC Chapter Design Awards Program recognizes achievements for a broad range of architectural works that elevate the general quality of architectural practice, establishes a standard of excellence against which all architects can measure performance, and informs the public of the breadth and value of architectural practice.

Jenson was fun to talk to because of his enthusiasm and appreciation for the design (and, since his day job is at Disneyland, he gave me a Mickey Mouse watch!).  I wish Jenson well in his design pursuits.
