The Architect Magazine issue 12: RESILIENCE is out now!
Rattled by international terrorism the architects have been thrown into an unfamiliar territory – designing to
exclude a ghostly demographic. Matters of resilience in the built environment have now strongly incorporated terror
threats over and above forces of nature. In the 2016 AAK Convention (titled Build. Resilience) Ambassador Martin
Kimani gave a perspective of the government counter terrorism board on social-security Issues in the region.
he posed salient questions to the design team “What are you building? Who are you building for?”
The client title has enlarged to include the users of the building, not just the developer. In many projects the users
and security experts are called in very early in the design stage to input critical comments and ideas on how to best secure the space.
