Recognizing The Work Of Johnpaul Jones August 1, 2014
Derek Kilmer, D-WA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Johnpaul Jones for his distinguished architecture, his commitment to honoring our natural world and cultures, and his accomplishments as a recipient of the 2013 National Humanities Medal. A Bainbridge Island resident of 43 years, Johnpaul Jones has enriched our community and historical awareness through his holistic approach to space design. Locally, he has earned the title of “Island Treasure” for his help in designing the Japanese American Exclusion Memorial and the Waypoint Park on Bainbridge Island. In designing the gorilla exhibit and the elephant house at Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo, Mr. Jones’ unique approach pioneered a movement to design more natural habitats for zoo animals. Mr. Jones’ design philosophy is deeply rooted in his Cherokee-Choctaw ancestors. Johnpaul Jones’ projects have demonstrated an ingrained respect for the natural world and native landscapes and for enhancing awareness of the indigenous people, cultures, and the communities in which they inhabit. This philosophy is apparent in his celebrated design of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC. Mr. Jones has received multiple honors and awards for his work including the American Institute of Architects Seattle Medal, the Executive Excellence Award from the American Indian Science and Engineering Society, and the Distinguished Service Award from the University of Oregon, his alma mater. Most recently, President Barack Obama honored Johnpaul Jones with a National Humanities Medal. The National Humanities Medal, introduced in 1997, honors individuals and groups whose work has enhanced our nation’s understanding of the humanities and expanded our citizens’ involvement with history, literature, languages, philosophy, and other humanities subjects. Johnpaul Jones, the first architect to be honored with this award, was one of ten who received the 2013 National Humanities Medal for his work in broadening our nation’s cultural understanding and awareness through his architecture. Mr. Speaker, I would like to close by again applauding Johnpaul Jones for his environmentally conscious and culturally reverent architecture and for his commitment to our community. From our nation’s capital to the beautiful city of Bainbridge Island, Johnpaul’s work preserves our nation’s stories for generations to come. I am honored to recognize Johnpaul Jones today in the United States Congress."
