Aaron Jones is a registered architect working in Detroit. He produces experimental theaters, pop-up structures, and comic books in collaboration with leading creative professionals and organizations around the world.

Aaron is an assistant professor at Lawrence Technological University’s College of Architecture where he develops curriculum in contemporary phenomenology, faux phenomenology, and representation.

While at Macdowell, he researched printmaking techniques and developed relationships between faux finish, science fiction, and performance art infrastructures that will translate into the design of a small experimental theater. These early print studies were inspired by dendrochronology and made into folding/lenticular panels in order to become slightly 3d, structural, and offer play with panelization. Recently, Aaron participated in the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale, the 2017 Biennale Internationale Design St. Etienne, and served as visiting architect at Cranbrook Academy of Art.
