Design Against Crime : A Human-Centred Approach to Designing for Safety and Security Hardback

Part of the Design for Social Responsibility series

Hardback

Description

Design Against Crime will aid the design profession to meet the challenges presented by the competing needs and complex systems around crime and security.

It proposes that designers should use their creative talents to develop innovative solutions to security problems that contribute to the ongoing fight against crime.

The authors first explain the design against crime approach to security and security.

They go on to provide practical advice on addressing crime and insecurity within the design process and offer practical examples of design being applied to security and safety.

They also examine crime victimisation from a global perspective, highlighting the benefits worldwide of reducing opportunities for crime, including issues of national security, such as terrorism and natural disasters.

A design-led, human-centred approach provides a way forward that is both aspirational and practical.

The book is aimed primarily at design professionals, educators and students interested in safety and security, from all design disciplines, including product design, architecture, service design and communication design.

The book should also be read by crime prevention experts, planners, local authorities, managers of urban environments and policymakers.
