Connecticut School Shooting: Architecture Plans for Schools


The shooter, who sources identified as Adam Lanza, 20, shot his mother in the face at their home in Newtown, Conn., then went to nearby Sandy Hook Elementary School where she taught and gunned down her entire class, according to sources. Lanza was found dead inside the school, according to officials. Eighteen of the children and six more adults were dead at the school and two more children died later, according to Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance. [Fox News]

There have been so many tragedies that changes architecture for the better. Perhaps the most prime example: The Twin Towers on 9/11. We have seen a revolutionary change in the skyscrapers built after 9/11. Changing the schools in ways that benefit the student’s safety is going to be another concern after such an event. Architecture can save lives! Some schools have implemented no door handles/locked on the outside of the building, only for the main entrance. This prevents any possibly of breaking handles/lacks. Also we may see a change in the front office design. More security and less ways of getting through the main office. All classrooms should automatically lock from the outside. This would be such a security benefit. An intruder would be able to just shoot at the lock, right? Well yes but the time it takes for them to shoot at a lock will greatly increase the time it takes for police to arrive, in return saving lives.
