Instructor: Maria Esnaola

Through criticism of the current penitentiary system, comes an exploration of domesticity in prisons. The project asserts four mechanisms, or pillars, of domesticity: natural light, privacy, reality, and choice. Each mechanism is spatially introduced to the prison to create a new psychology of imprisonment.
