What's in the book

The Book

Interior design students will find inspiration in Design and Security in the Built Environment as they learn about meeting security needs in offices, hospitals, schools, and other public and private facilities. Recognizing that design professionals must also take into account sustainability, accessibility, innovation, sense of place, and a host of other issues, the authors offer a seamless connection between security and these factors. To assist students in developing the mind-set they will need to consider security from the start of a project, the text focuses on the relationship of the psychological and physical aspects of security to interior design.
