Prior to establishing jones|kroloff, Casey Jones was part of the U.S. General Services Administration’s award-winning Design Excellence Program, where he oversaw the development and execution of some of the nation’s most significant new buildings. At GSA, he served as a client, participating in architect selections, shepherding the design of a broad range of new construction and modernization projects, and shaping policy for what is essentially the world’s largest development organization.
Prior to joining the federal government, Casey helped establish and manage the Van Alen Institute, a leading architectural and urban design research center. As the Associate Director of the Institute, he executed a complex program of competitions, lectures, exhibitions, and workshops aimed at improving the quality of the built environment. The Institute received an AIA New York Chapter award in 1997, during his tenure.
In May 2007 Architect Magazine identified Casey as one of the "hidden powers" practicing in architecture today and put him on their cover.
He has taught architecture and urban design at the graduate and undergraduate levels at Columbia University and Parsons School of Design in New York City, and is a regular visiting critic at architecture schools and professional organizations across the country.
He holds degrees in architecture from the University of Virginia and the University of Michigan and has worked in architectural practice in Washington, DC and New York City.

Reed came to Cranbrook after serving as Dean of Architecture at Tulane University in New Orleans where he shepherded the school through the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and co-chaired the commission charged with developing the initial master plan for rebuilding the city in the wake of the storm and subsequent flooding.
Prior to establishing jones|kroloff, Reed served as Editor-in-Chief of Architecture magazine. Under his direction, Architecture received more awards for editorial and design excellence than any magazine of its type, and quickly became the country's leading design publication.
Reed previously taught at Arizona State University, where he was the Assistant Dean and a tenured professor. At ASU, he received the first-ever “Award for Academic Excellence” from the Arizona chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
Reed's work on competitions was profiled in a lengthy article in the “New York Times” in January 2004.
He holds degrees from the University of Texas at Austin and Yale University, and was a recipient of the prestigious Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome in 2003. He serves on numerous boards and advisory councils, ranging from the United States General Services Administration Register of Peer Professionals to the Public Architecture Foundation.
