2015 AIA Academy of Architecture for Justice Fall Conference, Booth #15
November 18, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - November 19, 2015 @ 6:30 pm
Against a backdrop of falling crime rates since 1993, we are at the beginning of an important era where the diverse political ideologies appear to be coalescing with a unified voice. Momentum is building for a justice system that seeks alternatives to mass incarceration. Public opinion and debate is focusing on a myriad of issues that may impact the future of the criminal justice system: Capital punishment, immigration, legalizing marijuana, police/community relations, returning Veterans, mental health, and victims’ rights, to name a few.
This year’s Academy of Architecture for Justice Conference focuses on the future of justice. We are calling on planners and design professionals to challenge the status quo. We will reflect on the current justice system with all of its depth and complexity. We will bring stakeholders from all of the justice partners together to discuss their experiences with justice projects around the globe. You will learn how your colleagues’ design and planning solutions respond to and shape the future of justice in a real way.
