Editorial Reviews


"The unexpected connections made by Day are linked creatively with the sound logic of a true authority. At one point he juxtaposes Oscar Wilde and Public Enemy and questions man's attraction to both seduction and punishment. Embedded in the prose are aphoristic statements, like "to find the future listen for acronyms." Filled with insightful observations on contemporary urbanism, Day is a longtime SCI-Arc professor and has also taught at Yale." – Mike Sonksen, KCET

"Highly original and provocative book by LA-based architect Joe Day that explores the societal and architectural connections between two institutions that have expanded tenfold since the 1970s: museums and prisons." – Frances Anderton, Design & Architecture

"Joe Day, an accomplished architect and academic teaching at SCI-Arc and Yale, presents a daunting traverse through the dialectical territory between visual pleasure and psychological pain. His taxonomy of meticulous diagrams and carefully curated photographs of the subject buildings relentlessly synthesizes and interrogates the nuances that transect our most dominant socio-cultural edifices within late-capital: museums and prisons." – John Southern, Archinect

"…a fascinating new book by Joe Day, an L.A. architect who teaches at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, charts not just the history of jails but the surprisingly broad — and telling — overlap between prison and museum design." – Christopher Hawthorne, Los Angeles Times

"... Corrections and Collections is an exploration of themese of concealment and display, an intellectual pursuit soon surely to inform new buildings by this enviably erudite architect." - Raymund Ryan, The Architectural Review

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Corrections and Collections will make you think twice about the architecture of institutions--jails and museums-- that anchor both ends of our urban landscape...and what they oddly have in common. The scope of this work is focused on America, but goes global with comparisons with how other cultures deal with fine art and first offenders. Great read!
