ICA webinar:

CPTED for Architects

(13 May 2023)


“The views expressed in this webinar belong to our guest speakers and do not necessarily reflect the position of the ICA.”


While CPTED principles have distinct overlaps with the common architectural theories and approaches, there are different viewpoints regarding the practicability of the principles across ideologies, practices and regions. The diversity of the CPTED following, the diversity of its principles and diversity of applications merit discussion and a platform to share, learn and embrace.

The ICA Webinar committee has carefully curated a global panel from east to west of the globe with a special effort to include the communities that are new to CPTED and that CPTED is new to. They bring together architects who are well trenched in professional practice and practice of CPTED to share how the principles translate and manifest in the real world.


Topics included:

  • The role of the architect in crime prevention
  • Common challenges faced by architects in the practice and advocacy of CPTED principles
  • The merits of practicing CPTED in architecture
  • Budgetary implications, benefits or otherwise of embedding CPTED in architectural design
  • The role of CPTED in global sustainability


Who should watch: Architects, urban planners, designers, CPTED professionals, safety and crime prevention specialists, public officials, safety consultants, police officers, academics, students, researchers, policy makers, urban development experts, criminologists, sociologists, social engineers, decision-makers, and others.
