Andreas Alexiou, associate director of Architecture, TPS Consult, has appeared as a keynote speaker at the Prison Planning, Design and Development Conference 2010, providing critical insight into the factors which impact on the success of prisoner rehabilitation.
The industry event, taking place from the 7-9 December 2010 at Kingsway Hall Hotel, London, is aimed at giving project managers, framework managers, associate directors, architects, technical directors, specialist consultants and Ministry of Justice officials working within the custodial industry, the knowledge to move the industry forward.
Alexiou has spoken on the opening day at 2pm as part of a session aimed at discussing how to 'Design a Prison that Promotes Prisoner Rehabilitation'.
He explored the topic of 'Environment vs Regime' and examined whether the physical environmental design of a prison facility can challenge the current system of rehabilitation, exhibited by custodial officials to be the most effective methods.
