The Canadian Academy of Architecture for Justice (CAAJ) invites architecture students to speculate on these issues in a design competition for a new Community Justice Centre. Submissions are welcomed from either studio groups or individuals. The design will be evaluated by a jury of justice experts, architects and industry professionals. Participants are highly encouraged to explore a wide spectrum of architectural responses from functional and practical at one end to philosophical and social at the other – including ways in which this building could be integrated into the community and act as a catalyst for building a positive relationship between the justice centre and the community it serves.

Eligibility

This is an international competition. We welcome students worldwide to enter.

Participants must be currently enrolled in a school of architecture. Winners will be expected to provide proof either consisting of a recent transcript or letter from the school explaining your status.

  • Students who are taking time off from their studies to seek work experience but remain in the process of becoming an architect are also eligible to apply. 
  • Students in their final year who might have completed their studies after January 2021 but before the submission date are still eligible.
