THE next generation of architects are being encouraged to consider and include innovative counter terrorism measures in their designs as part of a new Home Office competition.

Students are invited to take part in the initiative which asks them to think about security features and safety issues when designing a fictional public space.

The competition brief presents architecture and design students with a fictional terrorist attack in a space approximately one hectare in size.

They are asked to respond with proposals for a new public space on the site with well-considered design proposals that are appropriate to the space and the buildings that will surround it.

This project is open to undergraduates, postgraduates and those in the first year following graduation.
