When we think about the “new reality” of commercial and institutional buildings, where security and safety threats come in so many heinous forms, a deeper level of integration is needed to safeguard the occupants of our nation’s schools, university campuses, hotels, workplaces, hospitals, and government buildings. 

Tom Jacobs, AIA, LEED AP, Principal with Krueck + Sexton Architects, has worked all over the globe designing, studying, and researching some of the world’s most hardened buildings, including embassies, consulates, and high-level government buildings.

In this talk, Jacobs discusses how designers can safeguard at-risk buildings without turning them into fortresses or jails. He also explores ways that provide the needed protection while keeping intact the representational and inspirational qualities of a design.
