A COLLATIVE REPORT ON ARCHITECTURAL RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL AND TERTIARY SCHOOL THEATRE SPACE AND EQUIPMENT.
ROBINSON, HORACE W.
THE NATURE AND FUNCTION OF CURRICULAR AND EXTRACURRICULAR THEATER AT THE SECONDARY LEVEL WAS THE TOPIC OF A 6-DAY CONFERENCE HELD AT THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON. THEATER TEACHERS, ARCHITECTS, EDUCATORS, SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENTS, EQUIPMENT SALES REPRESENTATIVES, THEATER TECHNICIANS, ENGINEERS, AND ACOUSTICAL SPECIALISTS PARTICIPATED. THE DISCUSSIONS INCLUDED NOT ONLY SECONDARY BUT ALSO GRAMMAR SCHOOL AND COLLEGE-LEVEL THEATER. POSITION PAPERS WERE PRESENTED ON THE STATUS AND PROBLEMS OF PERSONNEL, ENGINEERING TEACHING METHODS, EQUIPMENT, ACOUSTICS, AND AUDITORIUMS. SUGGESTIONS FOR STRUCTURAL PLANS WERE DESCRIBED AND ILLUSTRATED WITHIN THE REPORT. THE PLANS AND POINTS BROUGHT UP FOR DISCUSSION WERE INTENDED TO BE OF HELP (1) TO THE SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHER IN DRAWING UP SPECIFICATIONS FOR PROJECTED THEATER FACILITIES, (2) TO THE INDIVIDUAL ADMINISTRATORS AS A BASIS FOR EVALUATING PROPOSALS, (3) AS SUGGESTIONS OF ALTERNATE SOLUTIONS, (4) AS GUIDELINES FOR STANDARD, RECOMMENDED FACILITIES, (5) FOR BOARD MEMBERS IN EVALUATING THE INVESTMENT IN TERMS OF MONEY, SPACE, AND PERSONNEL FOR THIS PARTICULAR TEACHING AREA, AND (6) FOR THE ARCHITECT AND BUILDER WHO, ALTHOUGH WELL VERSED IN PLANNING, MAY LACK SPECIFIC INFORMATION NECESSARY FOR PLANNING OF EFFICIENT THEATER FACILITIES.
