Will Alsop Creative Prison

Will Aslop was commissioned to come up with a design idea which would aid prisoners' rehabilitation as well as providing a better, more humane standard of living. He came up with the idea of creating a village of small blocks of self contained cells providing the prisoner with his own key, which would aid in building self respect and also reducing the prisoners' vulnerability from other prisoners. His ideas and approach of course was met with many objections. Prisons should be a place of punishment, why should it ? do two wrongs make things right ? If we take a good look at history it does not seem to have worked very well so far !
