STRIVE explores Jones Studio’s four decades of work bringing inventive design to our built environment. The firm samples from ancient global architecture and the pragmatics of the American School, from the realities of today’s climate change to nature’s healing truths, to create a unique modernism of place. Nature is a primary partner and collaborator in Jones Studio’s work. Firm founder Eddie Jones, brother Neal Jones and partners Brian Farling and Jacob Benyi express the preciousness of water and light in the Sonoran Desert and beyond. Water performs, literally and figuratively, across Jones Studio’s projects, bringing interior and exterior “desert gardens” to life.
Jones Studio attributes their success to the “Family Table”, a shared space that facilitates high levels of collaboration and fearless invention, and a persistent forward momentum fueled by risk-taking, to solve the problems of different building typologies. Essays on 30+ built and unbuilt projects, public art projects and exhibitions trace Jones Studio’s solutions to how we might re-shape our cultural landscape in an environmentally challenged world.
