Announcements

Now Open: 2014 AAJ Conference Call for Proposals

Theme: Architecture for Social Justice

Conference: November 5 – 8, 2014 in St. Louis, Missouri

In this conference we will explore how current justice facilities are meeting the demands for change, and how this will affect the next generation of justice architects through the following tracks:

- Local Justice – Municipal and neighborhood level facilities including law enforcement, juvenile and re-entry, civil and family courts
- Federal and State Courts
- Detention and Corrections
- Sustainability, Research, Ideology and Education/Reviews

We welcome submissions at every level of justice building design that demonstrate these social and institutional ideas.

The proposal deadline is due May 19, 2014 at 12pm ET.
