Similar structures[ edit ] Bentham always conceived the Panopticon principle as being beneficial to the design of a variety of institutions in which surveillance was important, including hospitals, schools, workhouses, and lunatic asylums, as well as prisons.
In particular, he developed it in his ideas for a " chrestomathic " school one devoted to useful learningin which teaching was to be undertaken by senior pupils on the monitorial principleunder the overall supervision of the Master;  and for a pauper "industry-house" workhouse.
It burned down in Designed by William Struttand constructed init had fallen into disuse by the beginning of the 20th century and was demolished in It was considered a model facility at the time. The Panopticon has been suggested as an "open" hospital architecture: Hospitals required knowledge of contacts, contagions, proximity and crowding Criticism and use as metaphor[ edit ] Main article: Panopticism "Contrasted Residences for the Poor": Whereas Bentham himself regarded the Panopticon as a rational, enlightened, and therefore just, solution to societal problems, his ideas have been repeatedly criticised by others for their reductive, mechanistic and inhumane approach to human lives.
Thus, inAugustus Pugin published the second edition of his work Contrasts in which one plate showed a "Modern Poor House" clearly modelled on a Panopticona bleak and comfortless structure in which the pauper is separated from his family, subjected to a harsh discipline, fed on a minimal diet, and consigned after death to medical dissection, contrasted with an "Antient Poor House", an architecturally inspiring religious institution in which the pauper is treated throughout with humanity and dignity.
This means that the Panopticon operates as a power mechanism. Foucault references quarantine procedures in response to the plague at the end of the seventeenth century, which predate the model of the panopticon but resemble the control dynamic closely.
A plague-ridden town would be partitioned, then each house would be locked with guards on each street end in a similar design to the later-theorized panopticon. The Panopticon creates a consciousness of permanent visibility as a form of power, where no bars, chains, and heavy locks are necessary for domination any more.
Furthermore, the spectator of the panopticon changes in Foucault's account, for the idea that fellow people are watching and spectating reinforces the disciplinary society. Foucault proposes that not only prisons but all hierarchical structures like the army, schools, hospitals and factories have evolved through history to resemble Bentham's Panopticon.
The notoriety of the design today although not its lasting influence in architectural realities stems from Foucault's famous analysis of it.
Anti-CCTV graffiti Building on Foucault, contemporary social critics often assert that technology has allowed for the deployment of panoptic structures invisibly throughout society. Surveillance by CCTV cameras in public spaces is an example of a technology that brings the gaze of a superior into the daily lives of the populace.
They can transmit the voice of a camera supervisor to issue audible messages to the public. The Future of Work and Power to describe how computer technology makes work more visible.
Zuboff examined how computer systems were used to track the behavior and output of workers. She used the term panopticon because the workers could not tell that they were being spied on, while the manager was able to check their work continuously.The table below presents an abbreviated geologic time scale, with times and events germane to this essay.
