Justice Facilities Review

2016 Call for Entries

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.

Publication History: The first use of the title Justice Facilities Review was in the 1992-93 edition. Before that, it was called Architecture for Justice Exhibition, and was a catalog of the annual juried exhibition sponsored by the committee. The first published Architecture for Justice Exhibition catalog was in 1979, but the juried exhibition was already established before that year. The first year in which citations were given to some of the projects by the jury was 1988.
