Johnpaul Jones, Architect
Jones & Jones Architects and Landscape Architects, Ltd., was founded in 1969 with the idea of giving a voice to the landscape and its inhabitants through an integrated practice of architecture and landscape architecture. The firm’s practice is focused on five design areas: living places, living cultures, green infrastructure, wildlife immersions and landscape aesthetics. Jones & Jones’ work is rooted in a profound respect for and celebration of the nature and culture of place. It is this philosophy that made Johnpaul Jones, a founding principal of Jones & Jones, the natural fit as the lead architect and designer for the Confluence Project’s Vancouver Land Bridge and Interpretive Trail.
A Fellow in the American Institute of Architects, Jones has more than 40 years of design experience and is recognized for heightening human sensitivity to cultural and environmental issues. Jones, a Cherokee/Choctaw Indian, has worked closely with a number of Native American tribes, incorporating their architectural and cultural heritage into structures designed specifically to honor each tribe.
In 1998, Jones was chosen as the lead design consultant for the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. In addition, Jones has planned and designed a number of educational and nature centers throughout the Northwest. As the principal in charge of many of Jones & Jones’ award-winning design projects, Jones brings an integrated approach to built environments and the conservation of natural resources, creating projects of public significance and celebration.
