The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has unveiled a new counter terrorism guide for the aviation industry, which urges architects and planners to design buildings that can counter terrorism more effectively.

The guide aims to raise awareness of the importance of design and includes real-life case studies of UK buildings, where built environment professionals have created secure public spaces.

Designers are urged to use protective measures and building materials to combat threat and reduce the vulnerability of airport terminal buildings under the guide.

The use of barriers, bollards, landscaping, surveillance, glazed façades to limit intrusion, and blast and ballistic-resistant glass are listed by the RIBA guide.

Consultancy firm TPS co-authored the paper as part of an ongoing project with the UK’s Home Office and the National Counter Terrorism Security Office, which looks at ways of protecting public spaces.
