the courtroom of the future

Posted by

Client: Rietveld Academy in cooperation with Amsterdam Law School (UvA) and http://lawyersaschangemakers.org

Project: An inter-disciplinary class on “Design of Justice: the courtroom of the future”.

In mixed groups, the students were challenging the current structure of the criminal courtroom, trying to develop the ideal space of justice. The new design concepts lead to more clarity in the court session and facilitate space for consolation and forgiveness, for safety and trust.

On December 7 2018 the concepts were presented in front of a large audience at the Court of Amsterdam.

The photographs (@Archetypisch and @Anneloor van Heemstra) show the student projects.
