Architecture school welcomes back Northwest design pioneer Johnpaul Jones
Architect Johnpaul Jones’s holistic design approach evolved from his integrated education at the University of Oregon during the 1960s, which exposed him to landscape design and planning. But his projects are also an extension of his American Indian heritage, as they address the land, the animal world and human culture all at once. Jones was one of the lead designers on the National Museum of the American Indian, which opened in 2004.
