The issues of incarcerating Aboriginal peoples have been a matter of contention for prison administrations since colonisation. This presentation presents an overview of the types of places in which Aboriginal people have been imprisoned and how inquiries and people-environments research such as evidence based research and user consultation has influenced the design of contemporary prison environments. The paper will present current trends and examples of prison environments designed for Aboriginal people.
