Book: A. Quincy Jones: Building for Better Living (2013)

Postby robbhouston » Wed Oct 02, 2013 7:51 am

The companion book to the A. Quincy Jones exhibit held at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, CA this past Summer....

Lots of awesome new photography by Jason Schmidt. Also, plenty of vintage hand drawn plans and perspective sketches. I highly recommend it to all!

Amazon editorial review...
"Filled with beautiful photographs and informative essays, this volume presents the genius of A. Quincy Jones, whose collaborative nature provides a timely example for today's architects. Original drawings, models, and furniture designs from the architect's personal archives illustrate a wide variety of projects featuring the hallmarks of Jones's style: soaring interior spaces, the blurring of indoors and out, laminated timber construction, angled walls, and innovative use of concrete, redwood, and glass. Essays explore Jones's quintessentially collaborative nature as he consulted with other noted architects, landscapers, interior designers, developers, and city planners to create buildings of lasting beauty and importance."

Cary and I went. The images and info were of course fabulous... being AQJ, how could it not be? But we found it to be a poorly organized exhibition - in terms of layout and flow. It was a bit disjointed. And yes, Joe, would have liked to have seen more of his work for builders.
