Adaptive reuse of aircraft carriers
Master of Architecture
The modernization of the U.S. Naval fleet along with recent cuts in defense spending, have led to a number of vessels being decommissioned. This, coupled with the need for additional detention facilities, has led to the proposal contained herein, where decommissioned seafaring vessels, specifically aircraft carriers, instead of being broken up, are modified and adapted to serve as correctional facilities.
