  In reply to: Architects, query on school security...  posted by kbyrnes

...the typical downtown office building reaches something approaching its peak elevator demand five times a week if the building is fully leased. Nothing similar to what happened in Newtown will ever happen at 99 percent of the school buildings in this country. The frightening reality is that an assailant who has the element of surprise and doesn't care if he dies in the act can kill a hell of a lot of people. Perhaps the assault couldn't have worked in the precise was as it worked in Newtown, but it could happen.

Imagine applying "peak exigency" design to automobiles.

Of course I am not an architect, so I have no constructive role in this thread.
