Temporary Court of International Justice

“Banks and churches and courtrooms all depend on the appurtenances of theatre…On illusion…Courtrooms of course designed to promote the illusion of solemn justice. If there was true justice why would such trappings be necessary? Wouldn’t a table and chairs and an ordinary room serve just as well?”  - E.L. Doctorow

The Temporary Court of International Justice -  a speculative design project - is an inflatable, pop-up architectural service that can be distributed globally, providing an immediate, neutral environment to resolve frequently disputed international cases*, in any location or terrain.

* eg. Pan Am Flight 103 Bombing Trial, Camp Zeist, 1988
