From CLOG. In many countries, architects assume that designing to meet the local building code assures that their buildings are safe for the public. But what if a building’s harm is not in the risk of the building falling down, but in the building performing as intended? If designed for the wrong purpose, can a building be a human rights violation, and if so, what should an architect do about it? 

Coinciding with the release of CLOG : PRISONS, the J. Max Bond Center on Design for the Just City and the Masters of Urban Design Program at the Spitzer School of Architecture are hosting a lecture and panel response organized by CLOG that will critically examine the architecture of incarceration. 

Lecture: 
Raphael Sperry
President of Architects, Designers, Planners for Social Responsibility 

Response Panel: 
Jeff Goodale
Global Justice Director, HOK 

Amir Varick Amma
Formerly Incarcerated; Social Activist; Member of the Campaign to End the New Jim Crow and Co-founder of P.A.P.A II 

Dr. Divine Pryor
Executive Director of the Center for NuLeadership on Urban Solutions

Moderators: 
Jacob Reidel
Editor, CLOG 

Michael Sorkin
