ALL SCHOOL BUILDINGS ARE BASICALLY SHELTER STRUCTURES. THEIR ELEMENTARY COMPONENTS ARE (1) STRUCTURAL MEMBERS, (2) WEATHER PROTECTION ELEMENTS, (3) MECHANICAL INSTALLATIONS, (4) FINISHING ELEMENTS, AND (5) BUILT-IN EQUIPMENT. THE CHOICE OF BUILDING SYSTEMS IS DEPENDENT ON (1) SUBSOIL CONDITIONS, (2) SITE CONTOURS, AND (3) CLIMATIC CONDITIONS. SEVERAL STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS ARE ANALYZED IN TERMS OF THESE CRITERIA. WEATHER PROTECTION ELEMENTS SUCH AS (1) ROOFING, (2) FLASHING, (3) SIDING, (4) WATERPROOFING, (5) INSULATION, (6) OVERHANGS AND SUNSHADES, (7) CIRCULATION CHARACTERISTICS, (8) AIR AND LIGHT PASSAGE, (9) ACOUSTICAL CORRECTION, AND (10) AESTHETIC IMPROVEMENT ARE DISCUSSED IN TERMS OF SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION. THE ASPECTS OF FIRE-RESISTIVITY MENTIONED ARE (1) SAFETY, (2) BUILDING RATING, AND (3) LOCAL ORDINANCES. MISCELLANEOUS ARCHITECTURAL CONSIDERATIONS ARE LISTED ALONG WITH RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE ADOPTION OF A MODULAR SYSTEM OF DIMENSIONS. (MH)
