More about this titleBack to top of page 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.
