Counterspace's Children's Courtroom "teaches children about the justice system" | Dezeen

In the third of our series of exclusive video interviews with Sumayya Vally, the architect discusses how her studio Counterspace’s Children’s Courtroom project aimed to teach kids about the law, rights and equality.

The installation comprises a set of kids-sized furniture elements imitating furniture found in standard courtrooms.

It is used as an educational tool for children to learn about concepts related to the law, court procedures as well as their own rights and equality.

“The project is designed as a stage set for teaching children about how the justice system works and preparing child witnesses for court,” Vally explained in the video.

Made from wood and blue metal elements, the installation includes a witness stand, a defendant’s stand, a judges table, seating for the accused, seating for the public and a courtroom entry arch.
