On Thursday, June 2nd, building and safety experts will assemble at SOM's San Francisco office for a forum called "Life Safety Design in Denser Downtown San Francisco." SOM Associate Director Maurice Hamilton will moderate the panel discussion while Technical Partner Keith Boswell will deliver the welcome.​

The forum furthers a discussion that took place at the recent US-China Tall Buildings symposium. It will explore ways that the building industry should respond to the public perception of increased safety risks brought about by the higher-density, transit-oriented development of the city's downtown.​​ Co-organized by the San Francisco Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and SOM, the panel will exchange the latest ideas on life safety design in high-density urban environment among San Francisco’s building department, fire department, and industry professionals.
