Modern Plans, Modern Systems, Modern Living

With Cory Buckner

As an essential player in a new approach to planning and architecture, A. Quincy Jones considered all his projects to be a way of reinventing domestic life and the making of architecture. Examples include the cooperative community of Crestwood Hills, Jones and Emmons’s pioneering work on system-built Eichler Homes, and innovative open plans such as Jones’s own steel house, Jones Steel House #2.


VISIONARY DEVELOPMENT: DESIGN STRATEGIES FOR BETTER LIVING
This series of six talks ties together themes of public and private real estate development in Southern California.

In conjunction with A. Quincy Jones: Building for Better Living.

 

 

PACIFIC STANDARD TIME PRESENTS: MODERN ARCHITECTURE IN L.A.
Design Strategies for Better Living is presented as part of Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A. This collaboration, initiated by the Getty, brings together seventeen local cultural institutions from April through July for a wide-ranging look at the postwar built environment of the city as a whole, from its famous residential architecture to its vast freeway network, revealing the city’s development and ongoing impact in new ways.
