According to this long-circulated message, attached photographs of an attractive modern building show a new prison located in the United Kingdom (UK). The message includes shots of the building’s exterior as well as photographs showing the high-quality accommodation and sporting facilities inside.
Although the building might look like a contemporary office block or accommodation facility, it really is a new prison. However, the prison is located in Austria, not the UK as claimed in the message.
The photographs show the Justice and Detention Centre in Leoben, Austria. The building was completed in 2005 and comprises court facilities as well as a penitentiary. Modern architecture website MIMOAnotes:
Architect Josef Hohensinn did not find it all that far-fetched to take home comfort into consideration in his penitentiary design for the new Justice and Detention Centre in Leoben. Façades, layout of spaces, art concept – everything meets the highest Austrian standards.
“Lucky” Austrian prisoners enjoy not only clean and modern accommodation but can also move freely among their cells and the communal spaces in their designated areas. There are also outdoor courtyards where inmates can walk and sit in the fresh air.
More information (Google translated from original German) about the prison is available on the Hohensinn Architektur website.
For added effect, the creator of the message has tacked on an old and unrelated humour piece about Prison verses Work that has been circulating on the Internet for several years.
