Justice in Design
The Justice in Design report presents innovative design and programming guidelines for future borough-based New York City jails—termed Justice Hubs. Justice Hubs are facilities that are more responsive to the needs of detainees, officers, lawyers, visitors, and community members. These hubs create healthy environments and support rehabilitation for incarcerated or detained individuals while simultaneously providing neighborhoods with new public amenities.
By facing questions like, how can we create jails that are more healthy, rehabilitative, and respectful to the incarcerated and the communities that interact with them? Justice in Design arranged workshops, research initiatives, and community connections to create better conditions for folks in these scenarios.
