In our post-9/11 world, safety and security have become an increasingly important consideration for the designers of offices, hospitals, schools, and other public and private facilities. To assist students in developing the mind-set of considering security from the start of a project, Design and Security in the Built Environment focuses on how the psychological and physical aspects of security relate to interior design. The authors recognize that design professionals must also take into account sustainability, accessibility, innovation, sense of place, and a host of other issues. In this book, they offer a seamless connection between security and these other functional, social, aesthetic, and economic considerations. Interior design students enrolled in courses such as human factors, codes and building standards, and environmental psychology will find inspiration in this text as they learn about meeting security needs in the built environment.Features-- Chapter opening vignettes to set the stage for each chapter and establish context and reality. -- Case studies to document current practices as well as proposed ones. -- Examples, suggested readings, and key questions for each chapter. -- An appendix of frameworks, case studies, innovations, resources, and other necessary aspects of designing for security in addition to a glossary and a bibliography.-- Instructor's Guide provides suggestions for planning the course and using the text in the classroom
