British Prisons To Get Design Advice From Prisoners

Rideout, a British rehabilitation coalition, is sponsoring a series of workshops between architects and prisoners to design new prisons.

"Alsop will run a series of workshops with the staff and long-term prisoners at HMP Gartree, Leicestershire, this autumn. Participants will be encouraged to visualise a "creative prison" that emphasises rehabilitation rather than punishment and security."
