Justice Facilities Review 2017
Presenting the best in justice facility design
AIA's Academy of Architecture for Justice (AAJ) has selected ten recipients of the Justice Facilities Review awards program. Five of the recipients were awarded a Citation; the other five were selected for publication in Justice Facilities Review 2017.
The Justice Facilities Review program offers examples of a broad range of design strategies and depicts the latest trends in the design and construction of justice facilities in the United States, including the implementation of sustainable justice principles. These projects demonstrate quality of form, functionality, and current architectural responses to complex justice design issues.
