2016 Justice Facilities Review

The AIA Academy of Architecture for Justice is pleased to open the call for submissions for the 2016 Justice Facilities Review!

The Justice Facilities Review documents best practices in planning and design for Justice Architecture. Functionality and community impact, sustainability and economic feasibility, as well as aesthetic achievements are essential elements for identifying the success of these projects. Your submission should provide sufficient information to help the jurors understand the unique aspects of the project and the role that the architect and the team played in the development of the solution.

Carefully review the  2016 Submission Preview  before submitting your payment. You can go back and edit your submission until the deadline.

Visit the 2016 JFR Awards Page for the full details, including submission criteria, costs and jury roster.
