DIPLOMA - URBAN PRISON

Can a prison interact with its context?
This diploma seeks the possibility to do so. It is a fine line of balance when operating with the problematic relation between the two sides of a prison wall. This prison unit is made for heavy criminals that have extensive drug related problems, and focus on how the penal system are to hand them over to society the day of their release. Instead of hiding the fact that it is a prison, the project highlight itself as a institution in the urban landscape. And in that way force people around it to make an opinion about it, instead of hiding away the uncomfortable things in society.
