This is a brief introduction of our next Competition [PACIFIC 06]. 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 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.

Note: this is an open international competition hosted by [AC-CA]™ to generate progressive contemporary design ideas.
There are no plans for the Platform Prison to be built.
