Event Pass Information Event Pass TypeQuantity Attendee 0 1 Event Details Incarceration is at the heart of major debates in both architecture and government. Even as New York City and State change decades-long policies around criminal justice, major questions remain about how conditions can be improved for all those associated with U.S. systems of incarceration. This conference will examine how architects and policymakers can use design to improve life post-incarceration. It will bring together designers, criminal justice reform advocates, elected officials, agency officials, and housing experts to discuss design solutions to the challenges people face after their release from jail or prison.
