THE SCHOOLHOUSE IN THE CITY.
Educational Facilities Labs., Inc., New York, NY.
THE CHANGING ROLE OF THE SCHOOLHOUSE REFLECTS THE CHANGING NATURE OF SOCIETY. NEW SOCIAL MOVEMENTS AND PLANNING CONCEPTS, SHIFTING POPULATION COMPOSITION, AND NEW EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS DEFINE PROBLEMS TO BE RESOLVED BY THE URBAN SCHOOLHOUSE. THE ANSWERS LIE IN ITS TRANSFORMATION TO A COMMUNITY-ORIENTED CENTER THROUGH PRACTICAL MEANS. JOINT OCCUPANCY PROVIDES A FEASIBLE ECONOMIC SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM OF HIGH CENTRAL CITY LAND COSTS. PROJECTS IN TWO CITIES SHOW INTEGRATION OF THE SCHOOLHOUSE INTO A MULTI-FUNCTION FACILITY. COST REDUCTIONS ALSO OCCUR IN THE USE OF PUBLIC AIR AND WATER RIGHTS, THE CONVERSION OF EXISTING BUILDINGS, AND THE REJUVENATION OF OUTMODED FACILITIES. MORE COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEM OF SCHOOL-COMMUNITY RELATIONSHIP ARE FOUND IN THE CENTRALIZATION PATTERN OF THE EDUCATION PARK, WHILE THE PROBLEM OF THE PERIPATETIC FAMILY PATTERN MAY DEPEND UPON INDUSTRY'S DEVELOPMENT OF A SUCCESSFUL DEMOUNTABLE CLASSROOM.
