Event description

Description

An architect's guide to designing out terrorism


There is nothing new about terrorism in the UK and we have learnt a lot from its history over the past 100 years and beyond. This seminar will help you understand terrorism and terrorist tactics, allowing you to make decisions that could save lives.


This interactive seminar will provide an explanation of the current terrorist threats and how they may evolve in the future. Using case studies of actual attacks and exemplars across a range of typologies and scenarios, as well as original videos demonstrating how attacks have been planned and executed in the past, this seminar will focus on how building design, products and processes can be used to reduce opportunities for terrorist’s activity, as well as casualties should a terrorist attack occur.


The seminar will include sections on:


  • Blast, and how good design can mitigate the effects

  • Glazing types to reduce casualties

  • Understanding hostile vehicle mitigation

  • Building lockdown

  • Design measures e.g. mail rooms

  • Protecting heritage buildings


A multi-media terrorist attack will be played towards the end of this seminar, where you are encouraged to come up with design solutions that could prevent or reduce causalities and injuries had this scenario been real.
