MENTAL MAPS

JUVENILE IN ADULT PRISONS

FINDINGS HIGHER RATE OF SUICIDE A juvenile in adult prisons has a higher rate of suicide than juveniles who are placed in a juvenile facility.The reason attributed to this is the lack of supervision in adult prisons. NEGLIGENCE The children in the juvenile wards are considered a menace by the Prison management, as they are immature and demand special care and supervision for their look after, which already overcrowded Prison Management consider as extra burden, thus, negligence. SEXUAL ABUSE A juvenile in an adult prison is more likely to be the victim of sexual abuse than a separate Juvenile in a juvenile facility.

PROJECT BRIEF

RESEARCH ASPECTS 01 02 03 04

PURPOSE In order to find a solution to a problem the first step was to identify the problem itself. The purpose of this research was to identify the current issues which the present facilties and there occupants were facing all over Pakistan.As a result a vast research was conducted to identify the need for a separate and much more efficient Juvenile Reform Facility in compliance to International standards. OBJECTIVE To perform an in-depth study of the Juvenile remand facilities(Inmates, , staff, inmate family, and government officials) in order to gain a true understanding of the specific needs of all stakeholders while also developing a model to enhance the daily operational efficiency of the facility. METHOD One-on-one interviews with inmates, staff, and families; photo documentation; case studies; and background research into juvenile crime ,issues in existing reform facilities.

PURPOSE An general approach of an architect in designing a building is focused on programmatic functions and the aesthetic beauty to be experienced by future building occupants. The design ultimately is interpreted by the user in the form of a a mental map that is said to be responsible for everyones own personal view-point and how they perceive the world. OBJECTIVE By being aware of the importance of mental mapping, it is best to be conscious of the journey the occupants take arriving to, going through and leaving a building. The focus should be on what collective order, series and accumulation of stimuli he or she will experience.The objective of this research was to find the stimuli which positively impact the occupants of a facility in this case the Reform School.These stimuli would eventually be translated into an architectural vocabulary for the facility. METHOD An experiment was conducted in which a group of 25 childern between the ages of twelve and eighteen were taken to three complete different architectural landmarks which arranged from being public to private spaces.After the visit the children were asked to draw mental maps.They were asked to take photographs of positive and negative stimuli.The experiment ended with one on one interviews.

OVERCROWDING As all the present jails in Pakistan are over-crowded the Juvenile wards, are giving least bit priority, which results in poor living conditions. WORSE THEN BEFORE Instead of reforming and being a more productive member of society, these juveniles are becoming career criminals. After all, they are being taught by the repeat offenders that they are housed with for the duration of their incarceration. INHUMANE LIVING CONDITIONS Most juveniles are detained in unsanitary conditions, leaving them exposed to diseases and other health problems.

NATURE Nature was a major positive stimuli which was identified by almost all the children.The feeling of relaxation , freedom, calmness and peace were associated to green spaces.

02

A recent human rights commission of pakistan report expresses concern over deteriorating conditions in pakistani jails. According to the report, 4,651 prisoners were housed in lahore camp jail, which has a capacity for 1,050 individuals. Indeed, overcrowding remains one of the most crucial issues faced by inmates in jails across the country. As a result, prisoners are required to sleep on the floor and unhygienic conditions give rise to infectious disease like tuberclosis and scabies. Jail accommodations moreover are not suited to weather conditions in the country. In winter the prison barracks and cells are extremely cold and in summer prisoner suffocate in the heat. Furthermore juvenile inmates which are also housed in the same adult prison face an even greater threat.They are raped,molested and mostly ignored by the prison management.

The purpose of the project was to give the rights of juvenile in detention an identity , in the form of a seperate juvenile reform facility , with reform and rehabilitation as the

WATER The water - bodies on the selected sites were another positive stimuli which gave the children a sense of continuity , tranquility and purity.

PERSPECTIVE HEIGHT Structures which Another positive stimuli provided the children a proved to be structures which vast unobstructed provided panoramic views of perspective proved to be the surroundings from a height. a positive stimuli. The children felt more aware It provided them with a of the environment and they sense of openness and felt not only physically but also visual clarity and depth. mentally elevated.

The design of the facility was too incorporate the follwoing elements : The design should focus on the functional core of juvenile Reform school. The design should improve the lives of the juvenile in the Facility. The facility should not just be a space to hold the young offenders ,infact it should be a space of reform , education and rehabilitation. The design should be adaptable and a model for future Juvenile correctional facilities.


ARCHITECTURAL SOLUTION

03

The project took its ideological starting point from the hypothesis that the architectural environment can have a positive, stimulating influence upon inmates, by means of confronting them with environmental conditions that they may have never have experienced or been conscious of. This hypothesis supported the view that an architectural environment that stimulates, if you like, the higher senses, makes concepts such as education, motivation and integration easier to be effective. For example, a repressive environment kindles rebellion and stifles creativity. An awareness of nature and the discovery of new horizons inspire hope and a desire for change. Thus, the ultimate goal was to produce architecture that reforms.

TELEPHONE POLE LAYOUT The telephone-pole design is another linear style. This was used extensively between the 1920s and 1970s. Inmates and staff move along a main corridor down the center or the pole, and the cell blocks and program buildings extend from that corridor. It was popular mostly because it was easy to erect barred grills across the “pole,� and close them to isolate smaller groups of offenders in case of a riot or disturbance. These telephone-pole designed prisons were designed specifically to control prison violence. They were built like fortresses that appeared to be quite secure. Unfortunately, on the inside there were many hard-to-monitor corners and other places that were ideal for stabbings, beatings and other forms of violence. COURTYARD LAYOUT The last common model of prison design is known as the courtyard design. This model was developed to take advantage of the benefits available from both the telephone-pole and campus designs. With the courtyard style, buildings are attached to a corridor that runs around the prison, leaving a courtyard in the middle. The corridor can be used for inmate movement during much of the day, allowing prison administrators to contain and isolate inmates in the corridor by closing grills across it. The recreation yard is in the middle of the courtyard. This style is often used in high-security institutions. CAMPUS LAYOUT Campus style prisons have been used more recently. This style was first initiated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBP). The first of these designs included the buildings being separated and spread out over several acres within the secure perimeter. It was believed that forcing inmates to move from one building to another, walking outside instead of within a corridor, has a positive effect on the environment of the prison. Also, with the decentralized location of the buildings, there is little inmate congestion as they move through the prison. This decreases the likelihood of dangerous tension. The campus style prisons remain very popular today, as institutions adapt the design to best fit their purpose.

PRISON SURVEILLANCE

RADIAL LAYOUT The radial design looks a lot like an asterisk. This is a linear design with cells aligned in rows down the cell blocks. In the radial design, the cell blocks and program buildings extend from a central hub. This design has not been copied in prisons built over the past 75 years. This is probably because that all the inmate traffic and movement comes to one point in the prison. This congestion in the prison presents a dangerous situation, particularly in high-security prisons.

CONCLUSION

PRISON LAYOUTS

PURPOSE Before a facility which has captivity as its main function , a through analysis of the different Prison layout types developed over the centuries was required, to produce a new and more effective layout. OBJECTIVE The layout of such a functional facility is probably one of the most important aspects of the building programming.The objective is to critically analyze the four new and obsolete prison layout, identifying the various pros and cons of the different typologies. METHOD Historical and recent case - studies of Prisons and prison layouts. FINDINGS Throughout the history of prison construction, there have been basically four models of prisons. The layouts are the radial design, the telephone-pole design, the courtyard style, and the campus style.

PURPOSE To determine an effective surveillance type for the new facility. The effectiveness of surveillance plays a direct role in the process of reformation , therefore developing a efficient surveillance system was of the hightest priority. OBJECTIVE Define and analyze the commom surveillance types employed in present day Reform and correctional facilities. METHOD Research and critical analysis. FINDINGS The past / current generation of incarceration systems utilize linear/remote surveillance, podular/remote surveillance and podular/direct supervision of inmates. The common problem in these prison designs is that they can only provide varying degrees of intermittent supervision of inmates. Any Intermittent Supervision increases risk both for inmates and staff as it not continuous and , allows for unobserved, unrecorded, and unsupervised interaction between inmates and between staff and inmates.

04

Correctional philosophies and the functions of facilities are in a continual state of change, with the exception of the basic mission of confinement. This process of change can be expected to continue. The movement for increased civil rights of inmates has brought a new consciousness to the public, and to the administrators who are responsible for providing and operating facilities. Philosophies may differ with respect to various segments of the public, geographical regions, and the size of facilities. But within these parameters, changes will continue with regard to the living environment, levels of security, and physical appearance. The trend has been to emphasize open and normal living conditions. By all reasonable estimates, this policy should continue.

LINEAR SURVEILLANCE The Linear / Surveillance prison design, depicted left, places staff in a central control area (marked by the pink circle) with cells located down hallways branching out from the main control area. As shown on the right, the Linear / Surveillance prison design provides Intermittent Supervision of inmates, with structural blind spots in every single cell in red. PODULAR / REMOTE SURVEILLANCE The Podular / Remote Surveillance prison design, depicted left, places staff in an enclosed central control area (marked above by the pink circle) with some cells facing the control center. As shown on the left, the Podular / Remote Surveillance prison design provides Intermittent Supervision of inmates, with structural blind spots in every single cell in red. PODULAR / DIRECT SUPERVISION The Podular / Direct Supervision prison design, depicted left places staff in the day room area (marked above by the pink cricle) with some cells facing the control center and others adjacent to the control center. As shown on the left, the Podular / Direct Supervision prison design provides Intermittent Supervision of inmates, with structural blind spots in every single cell.

The development of new generation of correctional facilities was concluded as the older models were either ineffective or obsolete The new generation of correctional facility was to house more inmates per housing pod inorder to create a more family sort of atmosphere. Direct supervision units were now proposed that would hold 64 to 100 inmates per block. Natural light and ventilation were to be designed to be more normal. The fourth-generation facility is to use light-wells in dayrooms, with interior windows in cells. This new facilities will provide more complete services for staff in the form of weight rooms, mess halls, and better qualitytraining spaces. The emphasis within the facility will be on academic and vocational programs. A new and more intensive interaction with the surrounding nature is aimed at for the youngsters. The structure will stimulate the daily shifts between living, learning and recreation.


SITE ACCESS

N

The site is accessible by road and railway easily, as Kahna railway station is nearby. The site is neither in very close proximity to the densely populated city of Lahore and nor too far away from it. Those coming to the facility will thus face no transportation problems. There are no major heavy traffic roads passing by it,Thus, making the site noise pollution free.

KOTLAKHPAT CENTRAL JAIL

This area where the site is located in particular is really safe and secure. The main reason for this is that it is located next to the Central Jail,Kotlakhpat, Lahore, therefore the area is always under heavy surveillance and patrol by the Police. The the Police Headquarters as well as Police Residential Blocks are also situated in this area. As a result, the site is strategically secure.

DESIGN PROCESS A series of sequential relationship diagrams were developed to explore the planning and layout possibilites of the Juvenile Reform School. The diagrams commenced with basic programmatic elements such as Inmate , Staff and visitors circulation paths. The next phase comprised of spatial relationships between the inmates , administration and the visitors. These detailed relationship diagram developed a preliminary layout for the whole facility. The site analysis further stream lined the layout which would become the basis of the final master plan.

DESIGN EXCERCISE

MORPHOGENESIS

The aim of the design was to develop techniques to develop an ideal code of architecture which would eventually generate a structure as per requirments,program,site and circulation based on the concept of Morphogenesis in Architecture.Futhermore , its purpose was to explore the nature and effect of various morphing forces (from architectural program to geometry to construction materials , processes and other physical forces like gravity and wind along with abstract aesthetic and formalist concerns) on architecture planning and form. Hence, the form of the stucture itself became secondary as it was not determined in the start infact it rather took shape as various layers of codes/factors/forces were introduced onto the site , which became the logic of the design. This process was to translate into the eventual design of Ducati showroom.

This excercise involved mapping the viewer and site relationship at an interval of every 25 ft on the main road in front of the site.The mapping process began from where the site became visible to the point where site visibility was almost zero. This helped in determining the spaces on the site which were best suited for certain functions. For example the area in bright red proved to be most suitable for the Motorbike display area due to max visibility to the viewer at this point.While the light pink was least visible.

THE PROJECT SITE

The site is a small plot located in the old walled city of Lahore , Pakistan.The site has a 10 ‘ wide road access to the front.It is packed between maximum 75’ and minimum 40’ high residential building on all four sides. The site selection criterior was the high surroundingstuctures which minimized natural light from reaching the site, and thus were the challenge.

This process involved analyzing volumetric shadows over time on the site. The data provided became the basis for the site zoning and defining the natural light sources. The site was extruded and Geo - located and the movement of the sun and shadow-cast were simulated.
