As community-based architects, constant threats to school safety has demanded our attention. We see very clearly our obligation to face this question squarely and thoughtfully while proposing an integrated approach to its solution. This is not an issue we can put off to another generation of architects, but rather a statement of what we value today as a society, and how we will protect the most vulnerable among us — our children. As part of our ongoing conversations about this escalating crisis, our K12 Studio has just released a comprehensive white paper on environmental design and campus safety. If you’d like to become part of this conversation, let us know!
