'a radical reinterpretation of a much-neglected building type'
Buschow Henley's design for a 400-inmate prison is a theoretical proposal developed with the Do Tank and Demos. The prison takes the form of 11 autonomous live-learn houses, each accommodating 36 people, with communal facilities below. The chequerboard arrangement allows secure gardens for each house. This limits the need for the managed movement of inmates, so giving staff more time to conduct the new regime of learning initiatives.
