Frank Gehry: Building Justice tells the story of architect Frank Gehry’s investigation into prison design as a subject for the best architecture students in the United States. The film follows Gehry as he arranges two ‘master’ studios at the invitation of George Soros and his Open Society Foundation — one at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles, the other at the Yale School of Architecture. In collaboration with Susan Burton of the “New Way of Life Reentry Project” in Compton, California, Gehry and his students explore all aspects of prison design, learning first-hand the design flaws of prison life from women who have been incarcerated in the worst American prisons. The film follows the group on a trip to Norway to visit what is considered to be the world’s most successful prisons.
