Every Bond villain should have a Hydroelectric Waterfall Prison

Dr. Margot Krasojevic is not what you might call an "average" architect. Cubes of brick and mortar aren't on her resume. Instead, she creates multi-purpose flights of fancy, like this sucker. 

Meant to be towed out into the pacific ocean, Hydroelectric Waterfall Prison is meant to play upon the minds of its residents. The only view of the outside world is a desolate blue vastness that stretches beyond the horizon. The only sound from the outside world is the churning of the prison's waterfall. The walls inside are made from semi-transparent optical mirror which provides superimposed views into and through the cells. Oh, and everything is tinted a mustardy yellow. It's enough to drive an inmate mad.

But that's not the full extent of this prison's wonders. The steady lapping of waves against a series of Tyson turbines feeds the structure, powers the waterfall and even exports power to the mainland via a massive tether. All in all, the effect is otherworldly. We'll take two, please.
