About Us

Designing Justice + Designing Spaces (DJDS) is a boutique public interest design practice that uses design and real estate development to address the root causes of mass incarceration and structural inequity. Spanning the design of buildings, digital products, industrial design projects and community engagement tools, DJDS is rapidly gaining a national profile for our approach to the work that is as diverse as it is innovative.
