Summary

2010 Charles E. Peterson Prize, First Place
Significance: Completed in May 1956, the residence of the architect Fay Jones and his wife Gus Jones began as an exploration of the designer's own principles. It was the first of Fay Jones's more than 200 houses that he would design and build until his retirement in 1997. The home's significance lies in its effect on Fay Jones's architectural philosophies and his career that followed it. The building is an "expression of innate modesty and vitality-qualities" of Jones at the beginning of an extremely successful career. The organic nature of this dwelling reflected the best notions of post-World War II changes in American modes of living. Instead of a family adjusting to a "typical static enclosure," the flexible nature of Fay Jones's design, activated in its most raw form in this residence, allows the house to grow and change with the residents over time.
