Evan Jones founded ASSEMBLY, a Berkeley-based architecture office, with Margaret Ikeda in 1994. ASSEMBLY's projects span in scale from furniture to multistory mixed-use housing. As implied by the name, the firm focuses on connections between physical materials and the collaborative process of design. Its projects have included the design and fabrication of installations and furnishings as well as large-scale commercial work.

Evan's awards include the AIA East Bay Exceptional Residential Honor Award (2004) and the Gold Nugget Affordable Housing Award (finalist 2005), both for the Darling Flower Shop building in Berkeley. He was a finalist in the East River Design Competition in 1998 and received UC Berkeley's Sookie Lee Prize in 1993.

Evan also teaches graduate and undergraduate studios at UC Berkeley.
