The Architecture of Madness is a really interesting look at the link between building design and the treatment of the mentally ill in mostly the US Way before Prozac before even Thorazine and between the profoundly inhumane treatment eras of the 18th and mid 20th centuries psychiatrists reasoned that the best way to treat mental illness was to have patients live in relaxed outdoorsy open settings Places where they could be with nature be productive and not simply be locked away in a dirty cell until the end of time This is where influential figures such as Kirkbride came in who designed probably the most famous psychiatric hospitals in US historyOf course eventually overcrowding became a problem turning the very buildings that were supposed to help treat mental illness back into a system of warehousing people in deplorable conditions The introduction of psychiatric medications such as Thorazine and removal of funding away from state hospitals led to the ultimate demise of many of these psychiatric hospitals although some are still around todayThis book was rather academic which is to be expected and at times hard to slog through but I found the ultimate uestion to be very compelling was the architecture of the buildings helpful or were the odds stacked against them in a way that disallowed us from even answering that uestionThe author argues that after deinstitutionalization architecture no longer factored into the treatment of the mentally ill I actually disagree somewhat one need only take a trip to any major city in the US to see benches that are euipped with unnecessary handles every foot or so spikes driven into the ground near places one could curl up to sleep at night purposefully uncomfortable bus shelters etc An entire subset of urban design has arisen to make the homeless go elsewhere and the sad fact is that kicking the mentally ill out of state hospitals left most of them no other option than to live on the streets Of course the issues of the homeless mentally ill the hospital to jailprison pipeline and other horrific conseuences of deinstitutionalization are best left to and are addressed in other books
