THE COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY FINE ARTS CENTER, REPORT FROM A WORKSHOP SPONSORED BY PERKINS AND WILL, ARCHITECTS, AND COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY BUSINESS MAGAZINE (CHICAGO, DECEMBER 28, 1960).
HUTCHINSON, GEORGE A.
VIEWS CONCERNING THE FINE ARTS CENTER CONCEPT WERE GENERATED FROM WORKSHOP DISCUSSIONS ON THE FUNDAMENTALS OF COMPOSITION, EDUCATIONAL SCOPE AND FORM, IMAGINATIVE TEACHING METHODS, AND THE DETAILS OF SHAPE, SIZE AND EQUIPMENT OF EXISTING CENTERS. THE EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHIES DIRECTING THE FINE ARTS CENTER, THE DISCIPLINES WHICH MAY BE INCLUDED IN SUCH A FACILITY AND THE TYPES OF FACILITIES WHICH ARE REQUIRED FOR ART, MUSIC AND DRAMA WERE REVIEWED. ALSO DISCUSSED WERE POSSIBLE COMBINATIONS OF THE ARTS INTO A MULTI-USE OR GENERAL PURPOSE FACILITY. FOUR PROPOSED CENTERS WERE INVESTIGATED IN TERMS OF SPACE REQUIREMENTS AND DEPARTMENT UTILIZATION, AND TWELVE CENTERS WERE ANALYZED TO DEMONSTRATE HOW EXISTING FACILITIES HAVE SATISFIED THE OBJECTIVES OF AN INTEGRATED, FINE ARTS COMPLEX.
