Escape chutes would add Archigram element

  • Comment

The main problem with tall buildings is the essential use of the express elevator.

The problem this creates concerns safe evacuation in the event of a fire or other crisis.

Perhaps the UK, like other European countries, should advocate the use of the Ingstrom escape chute, a detail to turn any inferno into an Archigram delight, saving lives with its wayout design.
