Panama Papers Jail


Panama Papers Jail is a prison made with paper cells. It holds the people named in the “Panama Papers” financial scandal. The prison is built on a cargo boat located in the international waters facing Panama City. It can hold up to 3,300 detainees. Its design opposes two colossal prison “sails”, one for men and one for women. The Panama Papers’ Jail project aims to question what sanctions should be applied.
