Yesterday, the 31st of November we were given a new interior design assignment. We had the re-think the design of the library in the prison of Dendermonde. The space in which people live has a great impact on their behavior and health.
After visiting the library and the location of the new soon to be library in the prison, we had the opportunity to meet and chat to a prisoner who visits the library frequently and we chatted to the librarian who is an inmate. This gave me a great insight to how they use the library and it’s importance for the wellbeing of the prisoners.
Therefore, I feel this interior design assignment is not only going to be a place to store books but a place of refuge.
