The fourth Justice Environments Conference was organized around the issues that were  topical, or policy questions that will become pressing in the medium-to long-term. The conference hosted debates on interpreters in court proceedings, developing flexible justice spaces, and using mobile technologies in court.

Key conference themes included:

  • Court safety & security
  • Flexible court spaces
  • Technologies (including mobile)
  • Sustainability, energy efficiency and link to nature
  • Financing courts and procurement
  • Innovative justice processes & spaces
  • Interpreters in court
  • Representing justice through art

The conference  displayed of outstanding work by young graduate architects to design a children’s court (UNSW studio led by Diane Jones) and a Supreme Court building (University of Melbourne studio led by Graham Brawn).

Sessions were designed to bring together different perspectives on an issue, typically from an architect, a judge and an academic. These will be integrated with court architecture tours exploring issues like sustainability, use of art in public buildings or emerging technologies.
