A. Quincy Jones

Hosted by

Another Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in L.A. show has just opened and this time it is a retrospective of one architect’s work (most PSTP shows are thematic) whose hand changed the lives of many through designs for Modern living that were comfortable and desirable while efficient and affordable. A. Quincy Jones: Building for Better Living, at the Hammer Museum in Westwood, showcases some of the 1000s of projects by A. Quincy Jones, including the gorgeous Crestwood Hills residential development in Brentwood — originally conceived for a group of progressive-minded movie musicians and their friends — and the Brody House in Holmby Hills. Ellen Donnelly is a Curatorial Fellow at the Hammer Museum and tells DnA why A. Quincy Jones matters.
