|PANOPTICON PRISON||THE COLLEGE OF NEW JERSEY|
|"The Panopticon was to be a vast circular or polygonal building of from 100 to 180 feet in diameter...
Cells four by thirteen feet were to be arranged on tiers on the circumference of the circle and were to contain one or several prisoners.
The side of the cell facing the center had only bars and thus prisoners could be observed by keepers walking around inspection galleries, which had an arrangement of shutters or peepholes so that inmates could not easily tell if they were being watched."Norman Johnston, Forms of Contraint: A History of Prison Architecture, (University of Illinois, 2000, 50.
