AbstractBurglary, assault, illegal entry and malicious damage have greatly increased in the past ten years. Recent discussions regarding the importance of building design to this problem were held at the Division of Building Research, National Research Council of Canada. The participants - specialists in security, building design, building management and sociology - concluded that relatively simple modifications to building design and the specification of better hardware and construction would greatly reduce crime. This article presents questions raised and conclusions reached at these discussions.
