Airport Terminal Design for Protection during Active Shooter Events

This project proposes a look into building design and furniture layout for protection of the general public and airport employees during an active shooter event.

Background (Describe the current situation or problem in the industry, and how your idea would address it.)

Traditional airport terminal design is centered on ease of access, passenger throughput, and security containment. Many of these elements do not consider the need for protection and escape from an active shooter. There is a need to consider how airports can design airport terminals with protection barriers and ease of egress for safety while maintaining the tradition design elements.

Objective (What is the desired product or result that will help the airport industry?)

This project proposes a look into building design and furniture layout for protection of the general public and airport employees during an active shooter event.
