One of the problems with prisons is that criminals tend to get more criminal inside of them. A new Danish state-prison will try to change that by creating a better environment for inmates as well as the personnel.

The closed prison is designed as a low urban structure with lots of green areas. The structure is centered around leisure and working facilities connected via streets and a central square.

The aim - and hope - is that the architecture and its emphasis on variation, nature and light will help contribute to the resocialization of the individual.

The prison is designed by C. F. Møller Architects. 2005-2015 - Powered by Movable Type 3.31.
