Title: Active Youth & Passive Design: Addressing Crime through Design of "Safe Space" in Paukukalo, Maui
Authors: Takamine, Liana

Abstract: Recreational youth centers play a key role in shaping safer communities and can provide a sense of security within a neighborhood. The purpose of a youth center is to provide a safe, positive environment for adolescents and teens to learn and develop social skills. The facility becomes an intermediate space between home and school, which children can call their own.
The success of a youth center depends on architectural aspects such as tectonic form, space, and programming. The organization of space is a critical factor in the design as each area should maintain faculty supervision while providing the youth a feeling of independence and security. The building becomes a “safe space” and a place of alternative entertainment for youth. In addition, the youth center staff act as positive role models and help guide adolescents through this important transition stages in their lives.
Over the past decade, statistics show that Hawaii’s crime index has been consistently listed within the top 20 as compared to the rest of the nation. Violence amongst youth has become the second leading cause of death for those between ages 10-24. Through analysis of crime data, surveys, and historical analysis, this research will determine the main types of juvenile crime incidents that occur among adolescents and teens between ages 6-17 in Hawaii, specifically on Maui. A study of how architecture correlates to crime and how different design aspects of a building can affect the number of crimes committed in a given area will be conducted through a literature review of existing knowledge, including Oscar Newman’s comprehensive study on Defensible Space and Architectural Design for Crime Prevention, and the Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) approach.
In addition to existing knowledge on the subject of architecture and crime, surveys will be conducted in order to gain feedback from residents in the particular area of research. The combination of both existing and new knowledge gathered about architectural design and its correlation to crime will then be applied to recreational youth center design. The purpose of this research will be to provide guidelines for future youth facilities that will incorporate various architectural methods for creating safe spaces. The end result and goal of using architecture to create safe spaces for youths is to ultimately reduce crime in urban and residential areas on Maui.Recreational youth centers play a key role in shaping safer communities and can provide a sense of security within a neighborhood.
