    To the question of crime, there are two approaches:

    – Preventive: Make sure no one wants to commit a crime
    – Curative: Make sure, once a crime has occurred, that the criminal is no longer a threat to society.

    Norway’s Halende and Bastoy Prisons also take a curative approach. But if you reduce the cost of crime, this will not reduce the incidence of crime. I feel these are just proofs of concept, and aren’t scalable.

    Great project and I love the creative ideas of integrating the building into the landscape along with the tending of animals. A really fantastic concept.
