Deanna VanBuren recently launched an architectural design practice, FOURM, in Oakland, California, to develop two new markets in architecture. She is exploring how designing environments for the electronic gaming industry can have an impact on the public’s appreciation of good design and on its demand for better quality in physical places. She is also applying design to alternative systems to incarceration, in order to create new spaces for justice that are reparative and support innovative policies in probation, incarceration and adjudication. While at the GSD she will address the paucity of research and design theory in these areas and explore the impacts of art and design within the public realm.
