The AIA Academy of Architecture for Justice is pleased to open the call for submissions for the 2013 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.
The JFR jury is comprised of three architects and three professionals from the fields of Courts, Detention/Corrections and Law Enforcement. How the building works is as important as how it appears. The process of design and how the client was engaged is of interest to the jurors.
A unique category to the JFR is entitled Thought Leadership. Through this category we hope to elicit submissions for strategic or system-wide master plans, research studies, prototype design proposals and any other efforts that our membership are engaged in that further the profession in developing the most effective and innovative approaches to justice practice. While the graphic submission requirements do not directly apply to this category, we ask that submitters provide a succinct summary of the project in no more than 1,000 words. Graphic diagrams or other supporting materials are encouraged to assist the jury panel in quickly understanding the project.
Please review the 2013 JFR Walk Through to see the submission form and download the 2013 Concealed ID Forms before beginning entering your submission on the Submission Web site.
