FEATURED GALLERY EXHIBITION: We are fortunate to hold the BPJ Release Party During the Exhibition offered by ADPSR (Architects / Designers / Planners for Social Responsibility) entitled: “Sentenced: Architecture and Human Rights” an exhibit highlighting little-known spaces within United States prisons and detention centers that house activities deemed to violate human rights: execution chambers, supermax prisons, and juvenile isolation cells. Visitors will have a chance to see rarely available documents including architectural plans of execution chambers, drawings from people held in isolation, and photographs of the interiors of juvenile detention centers. The exhibit asks: When does a heavily fortified defense become an offense itself? -and- What do these extreme methods of containment have to teach us about the state of freedom in broader American society?
