Comments Off on OOIIO Architecture’s Women’s Prison in Iceland Is Filled with Light and Greenery

Madrid-based OOIIO Architecture has developed a proposal for a female prison in Iceland. After interviewing people who live and work in the design team determined that the worst thing about living in a correctional facility is the feeling that you are actually in one. The resulting design doesn’t look like a typical penitentiary; instead, it resembles the cogs of a large watch, trading the dark spaces and small cells found in most prisons for, a light, open structure with lots of greenery. Using prefabricated concrete panels, the construction will be economical, and efficient. The system will allow everything to be built on a short time line, with low carbon emissions. Covering the building with a thick peat layer, a vernacular design typical of Iceland, will let grass to grow over the structure to capture a natural facade. + OOIIO The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
