"The United States holds over two million inmates in its prisons and jails, and hosts over two million daily visits to museums -- in both, more than a ten-fold increase over the last fifty years. [This book] examines how architectures of exhibition and discipline now dominate the American landscape, the ways in which the two typologies complement one another, and why we've become a society of more and more extreme freedoms and constraints. [The author] shows that the surging demand for both museums and prisons has spurred architects to gamble on new design possibilities and to experiment with their scale and distribution through US cities. Day charts a cross-pollination between these building types, beginning with an unlikely convergence in Minimalism, and escalating through a wealth of diverse millennial holding spaces. [The book] surveys our many new architectures for the beautiful and the damned."
