Crowding, degrading physical and mental health of prisons, and deteriorating environmental quality are common issues in Philippine jails. This research aims to suggest built environment improvements in provincial jails considering both its punitive and reformative functions. Architectural recommendations include (1) exclusionary and inclusionary space planning, (2) planning to increase security, and (3) modular planning for limited spaces. |
