[PACIFIC 06]

Registration until 18th February 2013

The imprisonment of people is probably one of the bigger taboo within our modern society. A Prison is a place in which people are physically confined and usually deprived of a range of personal freedoms.
Imprisonment or incarceration is a legal penalty that may be imposed by the state for the commission of a crime.

The Pacific Ocean is the largest of the Earth’s oceanic divisions. It extends from the Arctic in the north to the Southern Ocean in the south, bounded by Asia and Australia in the west, and the Americas in the east.

AIM OF THIS COMPETITION
The aim of this International Competition is to design a New Prison afloat the Pacific Ocean, using an oil Platform as a reference structure. The design of this new Platform will include all the facilities a prison may need including cells, exercise yard, etc.. with a design that still facilitates human rights within the deemed confinement.

The architecture of this new building should reflect contemporary design tendencies, standing out for its uniqueness as a prison.

This competition hopes to achieve the following:
