NotaConcern over high crime rates and deteriorating inner-city neighborhoods has reawakened interest in Defensible Space, architect Oscar Newman's groundbreaking physical design approach to crime prevention. Creating Defensible Space, written by Newman and recently published by HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research, draws on Newman's experience carrying out and analyzing "Defensible Space" projects since the early 1970s. This publication provides an expert review of the "Defensible Space" concept and three step-by-step Case Studies to help communities redesign neighborhoods for greater safety.
