Pathways

Today we break down the literature for exterior and interior pathways.  We limit our study to the human pathways (as in egress and ingress paths); not wiring or piping pathways -- a complex topic on its own.  The topic necessarily cuts across several disciplines and requires titles from many standards setting organizations; including regulations in the Americans with Disabilities Act and with sensitivity to the safety of pets and livestock.

Syllabus

College campuses are the closest many people come to living in a beautiful city. The catalog of literature that informs the safety and sustainability of these "cities-within-cities" changes 100 to 1000 times per day. Many of titles in this catalog are unstable, time-sensitive and copyright protected. We break down the action in this widely scattered catalog every day, assign priorities, then schedule a separate teleconference to formulate responses to public consultations. Daily colloquia topics are shown on our CALENDAR.
