Justice Architecture: What Happens When We Design Out of Love
with Dr. Barb Toews, UW Tacoma
Ever feel small and insignificant when you walk inside a grand and ornate building? How about irritable after a day in a windowless meeting room? If so, you have something in common with crime victims and offenders and their experiences in courthouses and prison cells, respectively. These feelings of insignificance and irritability do little to support healing for the victim or accountability on the part of the offender. This Think and Drink will explore design concepts for justice architecture that better meets the needs of victims, offenders, and communities. Come see what happens when we design out of love.
