Victor Jones is a cultural activist, designer, and writer.  Jones’s creative and intellectual work stands at the intersections of architecture, art, infrastructure, landscape, and the urban experience.  A central theme of his scholarship, design research, and teaching is how infrastructure, at various scales, operates as a social, political, and spatial instrument. 

Jones is a design principal of Fièvre Jones, Inc. Projects include Bywater Houses (2015), Watts House Project Platform (2011), and a skate park for City Park in New Orleans (2009).  In addition,  Jones has written articles and books such as "New Orleans - Ecological Urbanism" in Shaping the City: Studies in History, Theory, and Urban Design (Routledge, 2013); (IN)FORMAL L.A.: The Space of Politics (eVolo Press, 2014); BASENTO Un Ponte (Euno Edizioni, 2015); and Un pont à part | A Distant Bridge (MétisPresses, 2016).
