STUDY CARRELS, DESIGNS FOR INDEPENDENT STUDY SPACE.
BEYNON, JOHN
BECAUSE OF THE DEMAND FOR INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION, NEW SCHOOLS ARE BEING PLANNED WITH LESS CLASSROOM SPACE AND MORE LIBRARY AND INDIVIDUAL STUDY SPACES. THESE NEW SCHOOLS REQUIRE NEW KINDS OF FURNITURE DESIGNED PRIMARILY TO GIVE THE STUDENT A DEGREE OF PRIVACY RATHER THAN TO PROVIDE OPTIMUM CONTROL TO TEACHERS. THE CARREL, PREVIOUSLY USED ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY BY COLLEGES AND GRADUATE SCHOOLS, IS NOW FINDING ITS WAY INTO SECONDARY AND ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. A NUMBER OF SCHOOLS HAVE COMMITTED THEIR STUDENTS TO A HIGH PROPORTION OF INDEPENDENT WORK AND HAVE OF NECESSITY FACED UP TO THE PROBLEM OF DESIGNING NEW FURNITURE. SINCE DIFFERENT SCHOOLS WILL HAVE DIFFERENT REQUIREMENTS, A SKETCH BOOK WAS PREPARED TO SHOW MANY CONCEPTS FOR THE CARREL. AMONG THOSE SHOWN ARE THE BASIC, BARREL, CLASSROOM, JAPANESE, BIOLOGY, AND LIBRARY CARREL AS WELL AS DESIGNS USING ADDITIVE COMPONENTS (BUILT IN ELECTRONICS AND PORTABLE EQUIPMENT). A HOME BASE FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AND STUDY SPACE FOR MEDICAL STUDENTS ARE ALSO ILLUSTRATED. THE CARRELS CAN BE COMPLETELY DISMOUNTED AND REASSEMBLED IN A DIFFERENT FASHION OR A NEW LOCATION IF EDUCATIONAL CHANGE SO DEMANDS.
