Prison Landscapes: A landscape prototype in a transitional facility for the reintegration of prerelease inmates in Thailand
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis investigates landscapes in the minimum-security correctional setting and proposes a landscape prototype in a transitional type of prison in Thailand. Through public collaboration and rehabilitative programs, this landscape prototype aims to be a venue that supports the reintegration process of prerelease inmates while serving their sentences in the transitional prisons (also known as “temporary prisons”). The landscape adopts the characteristics of a public park encouraging social participation, nurturing ethical mindset, offering educational opportunities, and developing vocational skills among the prerelease inmates as a way to reduce recidivism and help alleviate prison overcrowding in the higher-security prisons.
