Tract House - Wes Jones

Below are a selection of drawings and models which describe the 'Tract House'. A project completed in 1987 by Los Angeles based Architect Wes Jones. Jones' work is widely published and a vast amount of information is available on his website:http://www.jonespartners.com/ . This project and others by Jones are featured in the seminal Building: Machines  edition of Pamphlet Architecture.


The work of Wes Jones explores a highly technological architecture and suggests technology is a means to enhance our engagement with the world. Consider how mechanical and instrumental architectural components might interact with and respond to the animate site conditions you have observed and the dynamic processes of occupation associated with the use of your buildings. How could such an architecture engage with the  processes of change and transformation which characterise your sites?
