Annotation: DETAILED DISCUSSION OF THE CONTENT AND USE OF 'GUIDELINES FOR THE PLANNING AND DESIGN OF REGIONAL AND COMMUNITY CORRECTIONAL CENTERS FOR ADULTS' DEVELOPED UNDER CONTRACT TO LEAA.
Abstract: THESE GUIDELINES WERE DEVELOPED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF ARCHITECTURE FOR CORRECTIONAL ADMINISTRATORS AND ARCHITECTS TO USE IN THE PROCESSES OF CORRECTIONAL PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION, THE PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT OF ADULT TREATMENT PROGRAMS WITHIN THE COMMUNITY CONTEXT, AND THE PLANNING AND DESIGN OF REGIONAL AND COMMUNITY CORRECTIONAL CENTERS FOR ADULTS. THEY ARE INTENDED AS A COMPREHENSIVE SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO THE PLANNING OF STATE, REGIONAL, AND COMMUNITY CORRECTIONAL SYSTEMS IN WHICH INSTITUTIONALIZATION IS SEEN AS THE LAST, RATHER THAN THE FIRST, DISPOSITIONAL ALTERNATIVE. FOR SITUATIONS REQUIRING FACILITIES, A SYNTHESIS OF AVAILABLE THEORETICAL AND EMPIRICAL SOCIO-ENVIRONMENTAL DATA AND PERTINENT ARCHITECTURAL COMPONENT DESIGNS IS OFFERED TO FACILITATE PROGRAM DESIGN FOR NEW FACILITIES, AND RENOVATION OR REMODELING FOR EXISTING ONES. FUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SPATIAL COMPONENTS ARE WEIGHTED AND PRINCIPLES GOVERNING THEIR COMBINATIONS ARE OFFERED. IN EVERY INSTANCE, ARCHITECTURAL CONTENT IS DEVELOPED AND PRESENTED AS A RESPONSE TO POSTULATED CORRECTIONAL GOALS AND TREATMENT PROGRAMMING OBJECTIVES. SEVERAL DIAGRAMS AND ILLUSTRATIONS ARE USED TO INDICATE THE CONTENT AND USAGE OF THE GUIDELINES.
