For more than fifteen years, Jones, Partners: Architecture has dedicated itself to innovative,iconoclastic architectural projects. Picking up where their 1998 book, Instrumental Form, left off, Jones, Partners: Architecture presents an overview of the work created from their office in El Segundo, California, over the last decade.

Jones, Partners's work has continually evolved as a response to and critique of trendsof newness for newness's sake. As likely to be influenced by Le Corbusier as by Gilles Deleuze or science fiction films, their work features an unexpected yet shrewd use of materials and movement. The office pursues meaningful innovation toward a more engaging experience of architecture, empowering individuals to interact with their environmentsCorbusier's "machine for living" taken to the next level. Whether competition schemes for the Grand Egyptian Museum or a radical redevelopment of San Francisco's Union Square, or built designs such as the San Jose Repertory Theater, Jones, Partners approaches architecture as more than simple form and program; it is a fluid and interactive experience. Mies van der Rohe once said, "I'd rather be good than interesting." The sentiment suits Jones, Partners well, as their work highlights the difference between simple building and true architecture; form and function are considered from every angle and pushed to new, unprecedented heights.
