FROM SAFETY AND SECURITY TO LIVEABILITY AND LOVEABILITY – A CASE STUDY FOR INTRODUCING CRIME PREVENTION THROUGH ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN PRINCIPLES TO A HIGH SCHOOL DORMITORY IN HUNGARY
Published: 12 Sep 2020
Abstract: Due to rapid urbanization and the increase of density in large cities, urban safety and security strategies became increasingly important for development processes. The proper design and effective use of the built environment can reduce the incidence and fear of crime that can lead to improvements in the quality of life. Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) can be a tool not only for reducing crime and creating safer cities but also for increasing liveability and lovability in cities. Safecity program was the first comprehensive initiative in Hungary with the approach of mapping and promoting crime prevention tools and methods supported by environmental design. In the frame of the program, design out of crime strategies have been introduced by presenting national and international best practices. Sub-projects have been implemented to explore and provide guidelines in training young professionals and in urban development processes. The main goal of the pilot projects was to establish adaptable models and initiate professional discussions about how CPTED strategies and tools can be implemented in the different fields. Besides engaging future and practicing professionals, a special collaboration with a dormitory was provided an opportunity to engage youth and to make an example of how environmental crime prevention can contribute to create more liveable and lovable environments.
