Soft Security Engineering
Soft Security Engineering is an emergent field of design that combines aesthetically pleasing architecture with security mitigation strategies that are unnoticeable to the untrained eye and make occupants comfortable within the space.
The following literature provides a "roadmap" for creating high occupancy environments that foster safety, security and sanctuary.
Finding Your Bogeyman
The Security Engineering Calculus
This book supplements previous writings that concentrate of the organization of mitigation strategies that form the Design Basis Threat (DBT) during the design process. It provides a straightforward approach to identifying threat and worse case scenarios that require solutions to prevent them from occurring in the first place, and if by chance they fail, reduce the risks of injury and death.
Architecturally Discreet Security
The Future's Protection Blueprint
Sets forth a method of design which allows architects and protection design team members to create accommodating and safe high-occupancy spaces from a variety of man-made and natural hazards. When followed these guidelines help create built ecosystems that is not only functional but also meets basic human needs for living together in urban environments – safety, security and sanctuary.
The Solutions Matrix
A Practical Guide to Security Engineering
Provides usable solutions for the age-old question in high-occupancy spaces, "Why does it feel like Big Brother is watching me?". This new blueprint for security combines architecture, engineering, facility management and planner with solutions that are effective and prove a safe environment.
Pip and the Land of Blue Trees
Pip and the Land of Blue Trees is a story about a fictitious character, Pip, who decides to walk to a safe and magical place called the Land of Blue Trees. and meets other animal characters along the way.
It can also be used by any parent/educator during reading or story time. Additionally, our in-classroom Beta Testing indicates students get the most from the book when they act out the characters actions – clapping, dancing, singing and touching each other on the head.
