Launching AIA Ethics Reform Petition

Launching AIA Ethics Reform Petition

I’m excited to announce that ADPSR is launching an effort to ask the American Institute of Architects (AIA) to amend their Code of Ethics to prohibit the design of spaces intended for torture or killing. That means execution chambers and supermax prisons designed for long-term solitary confinement.  These spaces create human rights violations, and since AIA’s Ethics Code already calls for architects to “uphold human rights in all their endeavors,” it’s actually not that big a change– we just need a more specific ethics rule clarifying that these spaces are violations of human rights.

Sign our petition here: http://www.tinyurl.com/aiaethics.

If you’re an AIA member, then I’m happy to let you know that this campaign is coming to a chapter near you.  While Ethics Code changes are made by the national AIA board of directors, the chapters are where members can discuss and debate issues, so ADPSR is just starting outreach to many AIA chapters to invite them to consider our proposal and to endorse it.  If you are part of another architecture-related organization that would like to endorse our campaign, please email: prisons (at) adpsr (dot) org.

We anticipate bringing the issue to AIA in the middle of next year.  Join in, and stay tuned!
