Jonathan Barnes earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Design from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and a Master in Architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design. He began work in Chicago, Illinois, in 1986, as an architect with Skidmore Owings & Merrill. There, Barnes’ technical and design talents were applied to both new construction and renovation projects in New York, Washington, San Francisco and London, as well as to the development of the NBC Tower, one of Chicago’s premiere high rise buildings, and the cornerstone of the Cityfront Center Master Plan.

In 1990, Barnes relocated to Milan, Italy, to work with the architect and designer Michele De Lucchi. Works from this period included architecture and interior design, as well as product, exhibit and graphic design projects. In the most notable project, these various design disciplines were combined to create Deutsche Bank’s new branch bank system for its 1,200 retail locations throughout Germany.

In 1993, Barnes returned to Columbus and formed Jonathan Barnes Architecture and Design. JBAD is a small, highly acclaimed architectural firm that has been involved in a variety of project types in the Midwest. The practice integrates technical expertise and creative design solutions in a multi-disciplinary approach.
