Our Mission

The Academy of Architecture for Justice (AAJ) is a Knowledge Community of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). It is the AAJ’s primary goal to be the recognized organization that promotes excellence in design of justice facilities that:

  • Operate efficiently, safely, and securely
  • Contribute to more livable and sustainable communities
  • Elevate the stature of these institutions within society
  • Create a positive environment for those who visit, work, and live there
  • Achieve prudent stewardship of public funds

Get involved!

The American Institute of Architects actively promotes a diverse profession, including race, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability or sexual orientation. We strive to be an inclusive Knowledge Community representing diversity of thought, geographic diversity, both traditional and non-traditional practice and as well as providing opportunities for seasoned professionals, associate members, and young architects.
