Here’s my entries for this round of the Geomorph Contest put forward by Inkwell Ideas. This rounds’ theme was ‘cell’, whether that is a prison, a jail, or something more abstract…
This is the first floor of a prototype prison designed to allow total and complete vision over the prisoners at all time. A small canteena allows prisoners who’ve earned some income on the second floor to buy small luxuries and the tables in the common area sometimes see a deck of cards if a guard is feeling kind. The glass circle in the middle is lined with one-way glass and there is nowhere safe from the possible peering eyes of a guard.
The second floor of this modular prison is a work space for the better behaved prisoners to work to learn from a teacher, do some woodworking, metalworking, or head down the tunnel into the mine. The library here is filled mostly with a mix of legal texts and popular drama novels.
The Yard sits to the right of the first floor. It is an open space for the prisoners to get some sun, break some rocks, tend to the plants in the greenhouse, or be processed for release. A balcony connecting to the second floor allows a guard to watch over the activity in the yard. The open exit to the right leads to an open quarry for prisoners to perform their hard labor portions of their sentences.
