Illustrating the hidden architecture of migrant detention

Undocumented: The Architecture of Migrant Detention

by Tings Chak
(The Architecture Observer,

Immigration detention is Canada's fastest growing form of incarceration. Pending deportation, the Canadian governments puts migrants in immigration hold, separating them from their families, making adequate legal counsel inaccessible and subjecting them to constant lockdowns.

They're deemed flight risks and detained for overstaying their visas or permits, or for having their permanent or refugee status revoked.

Like failing to pay a parking permit or filing taxes on time, these migrants are only accused of an "administrative offense." But unlike those other offenses, these are some of the only ones which lead to detention.
