At Designing Justice + Designing Spaces (DJDS) we believe that the built environment embodies many of our society’s gross inequities. Through our innovations in architecture and real estate development, we seek to end the crisis caused by mass incarceration by supporting reentry and diversion programs and practices. With our non-profit, government and community partners, we co-create new prototypes such as peacemaking centers, mobile classrooms, and housing for foster age youth. Together, we harness the power of the built environment to create triple bottom line equity and support the success and expansion of restorative justice, education, and workforce development programs.
As DJ+DS seeks to harness the power of Autodesk Software we believe that an intern would be incredibly valuable in helping us setup our baseline processes and framework through the design and development of several components for our Pop-up Resource Village project. These include a mobile vending unit, mobile planters for urban agriculture, solar powered seating/charging stations, and others currently in the concept phase. The fabrication of these units shall occur later in the year.
