What is Design Justice?

Design Justice is a branch of architecture and design focused on redesigning cities, products, services and environments with historic reparations in mind.
The term emerged about 7 years ago when debates and dialogues about inclusion and diversity in spaces started to get stronger, creating movements that fought for the rights of people who had their roots and choices denied in society.
“Design justice” seeks to rethink design processes, focusing on people who are often marginalized by it, and using collaborative and creative practices to approach the deeper challenges our communities face.
