Letters on the Kent University Torture Debate

  • Comment
The AJ’s report last week on architecture students at the University of Kent being asked to design a torture device has provoked heated debate. Here, the AJ asks the question: Should architecture students be asked to design torture devices?

No to designing torture devices

Surely this is an exercise in tautology? Architecture students being asked to design a tool to drain the very last essence of the human soul, to the point of total submission; a device to push man to the verge of madness by being subject to cross-questioning by people who are, in reality, just going through the motions of questioning, but have, in reality, already decided your fate....
