To document the architectural design of a new youth custodial model that can address current challenges featured image
Australia’s youth prisons are doing more harm than good, with children coming out worse than they went in. Major incidents in every state have been exacerbated by the design of the physical environments; eg. Parkville riots, 4-Corners Don Dale expose. This project will provide decision-makers, architects, service-providers and communities with an alternative design for youth custody; a small-scale (10 bed), community-integrated model that connects children with the supports that stop reoffending, & provides a safe environment. It will study the architecture and operation of small-scale facilities in the US, UK & New Zealand to learn how design affects operations & how jurisdictions have implemented reforms.
