A RADICAL New Approach to Prison Design

A RADICAL New Approach to Prison Design | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

A recent topic that has been receiving attention among architects is the issue of designingprisons. The increased awareness of the problem has been spearheaded by Raphael Sperry, founder of Architects/Designers/Planners for Social Responsibility, who has been campaigning to have the AIA forbid members from designing execution chambers or solitary confinement units. At the other end of the scale, Deanna VanBuren, a principle ofFOURM Design Studio and a member of ADPSR herself, has championed ‘restorative justice’, an approach to the justice system which emphasizes rehabilitation and reconciliation in order to prevent people from re-offending.

 

Now Glen Santayana, a student at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, has used his thesis project to add to this debate, designing PriSchool – a prison which both integrates with a school of criminology and is embedded within the community. Could this radical approach to prison design really be an answer to the stretched prison system in the US(and elsewhere)? Read on after the break to find out more.

Ecorium of the National Ecological Institute, South Korea

Ecorium of the National Ecological Institute, South Korea | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The Ecorium of the National Ecological Institute in Seocheon-gun, South Korea promotes a design concept by SAMOO Architects and Engineers that reflects three key concepts:

"From the Nature," "Be the Nature," & "With the Nature." 

 

The first is expressed by the dynamic, organic lines of the Institute and its grounds.  The second uses cutting-edge technology to recreate ecological environments by aligning greenhouses with the optimal amount of sunlight for each one.  The third includes visitors who immerse themselves in the complex ecological experience.  The Ecorium is poised to become a landmark in green research, education, and exhibitions.

Wow! Sustainable architecture in South Korea

Mark Warren's curator insight, January 17, 2014 3:40 AM

Wow!

Mae Hughes/Lauryn Macias's curator insight, October 27, 2014 7:04 PM

We chose this article to be in the Intellectual/Arts category because it is about improvement of education. This article is about the National Ecological Institute in Seocheon-gun, South Korea which is an institute of ecology that focuses on 3 main concepts: "With the Nature," "From the Nature," and "Be the Nature" Its main goal is to become a "landmark in green research, education, and exhibitions." It looks like this landmark will help South Korea improve its knowledge in Ecological studies.

Harvard GSD is pleased to announce the second edition of the Wheelwright Prize, a $100,000 traveling fellowship open to talented early-career architects worldwide proposing exceptional itineraries for research and discovery. Available to architects practicing anywhere in the world, the Wheelwright Prize recognizes the importance of field research to professional development, and reinforces Harvard GSD’s dedication to fostering investigative approaches to contemporary design.

ARCHIBET by Fedérico Babina. | METALOCUS | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The buildings of 26 prolific architects are transformed into letters of the alphabet in this series of detailed illustrations by graphic designer Federico Babina.

The serie started with Alvar Aalto's Riolo Parish Church, before working his way thorough an assortment of buildings that include Walter Gropius' Bauhaus school, Louis Kahn's Phillips Exeter Academy Library and Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Pavilion. And it finishes with Zaha Hadid's Library and Learning Centre in Vienna, but also features Jørn Utzon's Sydney Opera House, Oscar Niemeyer's National Congress of Brazil and Gerrit Rietveld's Schröder House.
