Questions to ask for a correctional health project?

  • 1.  Questions to ask for a correctional health project?

    Posted 09-06-2018 18:11

    When designing a correctional health project, what question(s) have you found essential to ask your clients?

     

    Myself, I have one question that I ask my correctional clients every time I start a project. It sounds like simple semantics, but depending on how they answer the question, it can drive completely different facilities. The question is, "Is it a hospital that has security, or a prison that has healthcare?"

     

    I'd love to hear what other architects are asking, especially if it can really shift your understanding of what the client needs/wants. What's your question?
