Almost 11 million folks world wide are at present residing in prisons, with a big variety of these nonetheless awaiting trial and sentencing for the crimes they’re accused of. The affect of an individual’s time in jail is felt not solely by them, however by the neighborhood at massive. Many prisoners are so negatively affected by their expertise in jail that they’re by no means in a position to absolutely rejoin society.

In lots of creating nations, prisons are constructed to western requirements, eradicating inmates from cultural norms, and that has a big affect on their psychological well-being. This additionally makes it tougher for individuals who have served their sentence to perform usually in society. Isolating prisoners, having them consuming and sleeping alone, is usually psychologically damaging and makes it more durable for them to regulate when they’re launched.

Prisons Redesigned! is trying to find design submissions that look to look at and enhance the architecture of modern-day prisons. The jury is in search of a honest understanding of the function of architecture in correctional services, and the way design can affect behaviour modification. Initiatives ought to think about the diploma to which architecture can rehabilitate inmates, or, in distinction, the way it breaks them down and makes them unfit for society.

We’re asking members to design a completely practical correctional facility at a theoretical web site in their very own nation. The ability ought to be capable to home 600 prisoners and discover clever and culturally related rehabilitation methods.

The Prisons Redesigned! problem is a two-part competitors, pairing a design competitors and “The Architecture of Prisons” essay competitors ( Members are welcome to hitch both or each of the competitions.
