Meet Our Design Experts at AIA-AAJ



On October 29, the American Institute of Architects kicks off its 2017 Academy of Architecture for Justice conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. Our leaders in criminal justice design will be on-hand to share their expertise. 

Dr. Marayca López co-chairs this year’s conference, which will focus on “Multidisciplinary Justice.” Attendees will share and discuss relevant theories and evidence-based practices with experts from multiple fields, forging paths for the cultivation of collaborative interdisciplinary criminal justice/architecture coalitions.
