Corner case / Personal space

Corner case
Corner case

The people who are in a prison are isolated from society to serve a sentence determinated for the commited crimes. The isolation gives the possibility to repent and to redress mistakes but sometimes the reclusion can have some negative effects on the inmate because of the awful prison conditions. The convict needs a private space where remember far away affections, he needs peaceful and constructive cohabitation, he needs to occupy his time in a useful way in order to understand his faults. Following these guide lines we thought to the “corner case”: a private corner that the prisoners could manage indipendently following their own wishes.
