Jonathan Hammond, “People’s Republic of China: The Stone Flower Inn,” Architecture California Vol. 6 (1984) (now AIA’s arcCA): 24-26
"The Stone Flower Inn is a small solar heated hotel in southern China designed for an American company, the Chinamerica Corporation, which had a joint venture contract with the Chinese. While the project seemed totally unprecedented and unusual to me at first, I learned that it fits into an ongoing web of human relationships and traditions, dating back thousands of years, that finally brought me, an architect specializing in the design of solar buildings, together with local people in a rural community in the People’s Republic of China."
Solar Age Architecture: Six California Buildings, 1981

“A modest house in suburban Davis literally lifts its lid to the sun. Set into the flattened roof peak of the otherwise normal-looking house are a row of six 6 by 8-foot galvanized metal pans - roof ponds - sitting directly on the sturdy roof joists. Filled a foot deep with water, the asphalt-lined ponds absorb the sun’s heat all day in winder, assisted by the shiny undersurfaces of the raised insulation panels, which reflect additional sunlight down into the ponds.”

“The team of Jonathan Hammond and James Plumb of Winters designed this single-story three-bedroom home for Dinuba, twenty-five miles southeast of Fresno. Dinuba, in the Central Valley, experiences hot summers, often with several consecutive days’ temperatures in the 100s. The high cooling requirements of this climate are met by the “cool Pool” design, which needs no back up system for maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature.”

“Another California design firm, Living Systems, headed by Jon Hammond, has also been at passive design’s leading edge for several years. Hammond’s work with roof-ponds and water-walls led to the design of the Suncatcher house in sacramento as a display home for Pacific Gas & Electric.”

"Last Tuesday Rosalynn Carter came to Davis to commend that community on its unique progress on energy conservation… Following a private dinner with Davis City Council members and their wives, Mrs. Carter attended a Davis City Council meeting at which she presented her community Energy Conservation Awards. Jon Hammond received such an award, along with colleagues Marshall Hunt, Richard Cramer and L.W. Neubauer, for their work in developing the energy conservation code which has enabled Davis to reduce its per capita energy use 18 percent over the last five years."
