"Building the Just City"

Third Annual David Dillon Symposium

Friday and Saturday October 10-11, 2014

Sponsored by the Nasher Sculpture Center and the Dallas Morning News.

In recent days, as the events of Ferguson, Missouri have reverberated around the nation, we have been confronted by the reality that the idea and experience of justice in the American city is contested and imperfect. We have an enormous population living in the shadow world of the prison system, and our streets are becoming increasingly militarized. This year's Dillon Symposium brings together an interdisciplinary group of speakers—architects, historians, sociologists, police professionals, and other experts in criminal justice — to examine the ways that we can construct spaces, in our streets and in our prisons, that better reflect our ideals of justice, fairness, and decency.
