Here's to Professor Jones: A. Quincy Jones Exhibits Lesser Known Work

  • PROJECT NAME Multiple
  • LOCATION Los Angeles
  • FIRM A. Quincy Jones
Archibald Quincy Jones, aka A. Quincy, is perhaps best known for the mid-century Los Angeles houses he designed for such high-profile clients as Gary Cooper. But Jones was also an architecture professor at the University of Southern California, championing cost-effective and sustainable building methods. Also under-the-radar is the fact that, among his 5,000-plus projects were a slew in the office sector—for companies such as Warner Bros. Records and Herman Miller

The first museum exhibition of the architect’s work, “A. Quincy Jones: Building for a Better Living” at L.A.’s Hammer Museum through September 8, illuminates Jones’s less-recognized contributions to 1960’s and ’70’s architecture and planning. His community developments, single-family homes, work spaces, churches, schools, and libraries will be presented via sketches, plans, and models and will be joined by murals of newly shot projects, plus vintage photos by Interior Design Hall of Fame member Julius Shulman.
