The first book published on pioneering Los Angeles architect and educator Archibald Quincy Jones (1913-79) is now available in paperback. Jones shared the Case Study goal of architects such as Richard Neutra of reinventing the house as a way of redefining the way people lived in postwar America. Illustrated with an unparalleled collection of vintage photographs by renowned architecture photographers including Julius Shulman and Marvin Rand, this book is the perfect introduction to the work of a man whose projects are quintessential examples of mid-20th-century American architecture.
