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.  This talk covers his cooperative community of Crestwood Hills (not Crestwood Heights), Jones and Emmons’s pioneering work on system-built Eichler Homes, and innovative open plans such as Jones’s own house, Jones Steel House #2.
