Stateville Correctional Center

"Parts of the prison were designed according to the panopticon concept proposed by British philosopher and prison reformer, Jeremy Bentham."

-Wikipedia

"Is it surprising that the cellular prison, with its regular chronologies, forced labour [sic], its authorities of surveillance and registration, its experts in normality, who continue and multiply the functions of the judge, should have become the modern instrument of penality? Is it surprising that prisons resemble factories, schools, barracks, hospitals, which all resemble prisons?"

-Michel Foucault
