Abstract

I contend that the architectural environment of the prison can directly affect prisoner behavior in terms of violence and pathology. Certain design configurations can promote inmate aggression and negative psychological effects. Thus, I shall explore the physical and philosophical state of the prison briefly through history and intensively at present, and shall attempt to present suggestions for the modification of these effects via change in the architectural environment.
