Product description

From the Back Cover

A handy source of the latest information on the assessment and design of site security

Security and Site Design offers state-of-the-art advice for integrating site and building security elements and associated technologies into a design that makes high-quality and enjoyable spaces, especially in the public realm. It guides readers on how to complement a building's purpose and operation with protective measures through design, technology, operational activities, and procedures.

This helpful guide is specifically written for design professionals who want reliable site and security design information quickly, without having to wade through material on the building structure. A practical book to use every day, Security and Site Design relates covered topics to real-world practice with illustrative case studies on such built environments as:

  • Southwest Federal Center in Washington, D.C.
  • Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C.
  • Pennsylvania Avenue at the White House, and City Hall Park in New York City
  • State House in Sacramento, California
  • Ronald Reagan/International Trade Center Building in Washington, D.C.
  • The Hanley Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in Syracuse, New York

Written by an expert author team led by past ASLA president Leonard Hopper, Security and Site Design is a complete resource of basic concepts of site security design and risk/threat assessment that helps landscape architects and other design professionals practice in top form and develop successful careers.
