In response to recent events, the AIA-District of Columbia and the AIA-Baltimore Committees on Architecture for Education (AIA/DC-CAE & AIA/BA-CAE) and the Association for Learning Environments Chesapeake Bay Delaware Valley Chapter (A4LE-CBDV) are hosting a group forum focused on school safety. Our goal is to expand upon and strengthen our understanding of the ways that school environments might be developed and/or adapted to reduce the incidence of crime within and near to school facilities.
We will hold discussions focused upon how “design and effective use the built environment can lead to reduction in fear and the incidence of crime and improvement in the quality of life”.
We will divide the invited participants into round table groups of 4-10 persons each. The groups will be challenged to address the following topics and come up with a set of important observations and recommended actions:
- Natural Surveillance
- Access Management
- Territorial Reinforcement
- Other Approaches
We will open with a description of the challenge and the associated discussion “ground-rules”. In addition to holding the discussion we will ask each table to elect a spokesperson who will be responsible to present their table’s important observations and recommended actions.
We intend to organize the Groups so that each table will include: at least one facilitator from the AIA DC-CAE, the AIA BA-CAE or the A4LE-CBDV; one or more School representatives; and invited participants.
Results from the discussions will be compiled in to a summary report to be distributed to the participants after the Event.
This is a Free Event
