Description

This new book focuses on an advanced graduate architecture studio at Yale led by Turner Brooks and Jonathan Toews for the design of a Family Justice Center for New Haven. This relatively new institution is designed to assist with domestic violence victims on many social, emotional, and economic levels. It is an all inclusive environment where the victim can seek help from a wide- range of experts in different fields including law, physical health, mental health, life planning. The analyses and proposals demonstrate how engaging design can be integrated into a center to make a place of healing that is also accessible to city services.
