Equity in the Built Environment: Restorative Justice via ZOOM

In partnership with the National Building Museum, the Sing Sing Prison Museum is proud to present April’s webinar:

Learn how the Oakland-based architecture and real estate development non-profit Designing Justice+Designing Spaces (DJDS) is working to end mass incarceration by building infrastructure that addresses its root causes. Deanna Van Buren, co-founder, executive director, and design director discusses her studio’s work countering the traditional adversarial and punitive architecture of justice by creating spaces and buildings for restorative justice, community building, and housing for people coming out of incarceration. This program complements the exhibition Building for a Decarceration Nation, a virtual exhibition offered through May 15 here. The program is facilitated by Maisie HughesASLA, co-founder, The Urban Studio.

This program continues the National Building Museum’s Equity in the Built Environment series of conversations that focus on how buildings, landscapes, interiors, and streets can be the cause of—and, more important, the cure for—social and racial disparities.
