The Jones and Emmons Building was built in 1954 and enlarged in 1958 as the home of the architects A. Quincy Jones and Frederick R. Emmons. Jones and Emmons were among the most prominent and prolific Southern California Mid Century architects, responsible for hundreds of houses, including Sunnylands, the Annenberg Estate in Rancho Mirage, and academic buildings, including the Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism at USC and Young Research Library at UCLA. Declared a City of Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument in 2001, it is home to the architecture practice of Frederick Fisher and Partners. The building was recorded by the artist Ed Ruscha in his 1974 photographs of Los Angeles Streets. It is on a stretch of Route 66 that is now Santa Monica Boulevard, in West Los Angeles, 2.5 miles from Santa Monica Beach.
