Justice in Design Workshops
In our search to better understand the relationship between people and the built environment, Van Alen Institute has partnered with the Independent Commission on New York City Criminal Justice and Incarceration Reform for Justice in Design, an ideas project exploring opportunities to create a more effective and humane jail system in New York City. We want to learn how jails impact the health and well-being of the people inside them and the communities in which they sit.

The project aims to develop innovative, realistic, and progressive programming and design guidelines for new jail facilities. The Commission, convened at the request of New York City Speaker Melissa Mark-Viterito in order to explore ways to craft a blueprint for the future of criminal justice in the city, is completing its final report and will use this work to inform jail facility design principals within the report.

In order to inform the guidelines, a design team will engage with key stakeholders in three different community workshops in Melrose, the Bronx, Kew Gardens and Forest Hills, Queens, and Downtown Brooklyn that explore:

• A healthier jail system that is more rehabilitative and respectful to those who both inhabit and work in the jail and the communities that interact with them

• Social services and programming to help incarcerated individuals successfully re-enter the community

• Neighborhood services and amenities that can benefit the community
