BBC News feature on a prison in Uruguay that encourages inmates to set up businesses in the prison. Has a re-offending rate of 50%. Interesting idea that could be written into the narrative of the master plan. Disaffected youth from the prison could be encouraged to farm the land of the water meadows, learning a new skill along the way and of what the project does for local infrastructure. Such as feeding the population and supplying the tools to build their own urban farming infrastructure; i.e. composting points for food waste, vertical farming techniques, designs and products etc. An open-source or ‘free-architecture’ planning initiative.
Need to start the storyboard! Present the brief as a story of ‘Winchester Horticultural City’. Present the final project as a story too, told from the perspective of the people using it. People are the focus, the architecture is the context.
