Archibald Quincy Jones (1913-79) was a Los Angeles-based architect and educator who shared the Case Study goal of reinventing the house as a way of redefining the way people lived in post-war America. A pioneer in 'greenbelt' planning and 'green' design, Jones raised the level of the tract house in California from the simple stucco box to a structure of beauty and logic surrounded by gardens and integrated into the landscape. He introduced new materials and a new way of living within the built environment: his work bridged the gap between custom- and developer-built homes. The exquisite detailing and siting of Jones's houses, churches, civic and university buildings make them quintessential embodiments of mid-century American architecture. This is the first ever book to be published on Jones. It documents his full career, from his post-war planning projects to his long association with Palo Alto building magnate Joseph Eichler. The volume consists of two parts: a substantial introductory essay tracing Jones's life and career, with a synopsis of key projects and his contributions to planning; and a catalogue of 60 of Jones's projects illustrated with high-quality black-and-white period photographs, and plans and renderings by Jones himself.About the Author:
Cory Buckner is a practising architect and writer who bought a house designed by Jones and began to research his work. She obtained her architecture degree from the California Institute of the Arts and an MA in Architectural History at the University of California, Los Angeles.
