Professor Edward Jones CBE AAdip Hons RIBA Hon RIAI
Edward Jones graduated from the Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA) London in 1963. Since then he has divided his time principally between private practice, teaching in Europe and North America, design jury service and writing.
In 1982 he won first prize in the Mississauga City Hall competition in Canada, which received a Grosvenor Generals award in 1988. In 1989, with his partner Jeremy Dixon, the practice Dixon Jones was formed and produced various Arts and University buildings; most notably the Royal Opera House, the National Portrait Gallery, the East Wing of the National Gallery and the Said Business School for Oxford University. The practice also has extensive masterplanning experience demonstrated at Somerset House, the National Gallery, Exhibition Road, a new residential development at Chelsea Barracks and in 2016, revisions to the approach to Wembley Stadium and the reclamation of College Green Dublin.
From 1973 to 1983 Edward was Senior Tutor at the Royal College of Art and has been visiting Professor at Princeton, Harvard, Cornell and the University of Toronto. He has served on many design panels and international juries including the Stirling Price Jury, and the Design Review Panel (DRP) for the 2012 Olympic Games. His book ‘A Guide to the Architecture of London’ (with Christopher Woodward) was first published in 1983 and is now in its fifth edition, and in 2017 it was converted by the Architectural Foundation into an app.
In 2011 he was made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI), and was awarded a CBE.
