Horizonte

(horizon)

Horizonte was a group project for the projetar competition. The challenge was to design an inclusive prison in the northeast city, Maceió.

The two most important aspects of our design were:

  • to burry the dividing wall as it was the main distinction between the outsiders and the insiders.   In order that, the whole surroundings were designed as a park to attract the community and to deconstruct the bad prisoner stereotype as each side could see each other.
  • to separate the buildings as the daily routine would reveal the human condition of each individual there inside.
