just space(s) – a shitload of informality

after french justice, the world is now also gay for social justice.

according to wikipedia, social justice “refers to the concept of a just society, where “justice” refers to more than just the administration of laws. It is based on the idea of a society which gives individuals and groups fair treatment and a just share of the benefits of society. Different proponents of social justice have developed different interpretations of what constitutes fair treatment and a just share. It can also mean distribution of advantages and disadvantages within a society or community.”

especially architects are starting to realize that we are not just here to make nice buildings, we are also here to make a difference. two of these architects making a difference are ava bromberg and nicholas brown, who are organizing an exhibition event in los angeles in septoctnov, just space(s). it aims to give an overview of the unjust spaces of the past and present, and tries to inspire visitors to create the just spaces of the future.
