As we move through our day we give little thought to the invisible things around us; such as the ramp connecting the street to the kerb or the lighting that guides our path – until they go wrong.
It is said that innovation is inspired by trauma and tragedy.
Here is video calling for crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) following a terrible tragedy in Melbourne Victoria.
Call to Action: If you see the lights out in your local park, contact your council. If you see a toilet door lock broken at a shopping centre, drop past the information desk to report it. Social media makes this very easy today.
And if you are an Architect or Project manager, check out information on CPTED and ensure you are doing the best at designing for public safety.
