Drawing the Line: Architects and Prisons

Drawing the Line: Architects and Prisons

An interesting post by Michael Sorkin. It supports the call for architects to refuse designing so called ‘chambers of living death’, the main example of this in the article being the designs of Supermax prisons. It is well worth a read and looks closely at the codes and ethics of architects. 

Feel free to comment on what you think of the article.
