MODULAR COORDINATION AND SCHOOL DESIGN, A STATE-OF-THE-ART REPORT TO THE ARCHITECTURAL AND EDUCATIONAL PROFESSIONS. FINAL REPORT.
GREEN, ALAN C.; KOPPES, WAYNE F.
THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS STUDY WERE--(1) TO DETERMINE THE INFLUENCE OF MODULAR COORDINATION OF BUILDING DESIGN, (2) TO INVESTIGATE CURRENT ATTITUDES OF THE BUILDING INDUSTRY TOWARD THE MODULAR CONCEPT, AND (3) TO EVALUATE THE CONCEPT'S SIGNIFICANCE, MERIT, AND IMPLICATIONS IN TERMS OF SCHOOL BUILDING DESIGN. THESE OBJECTIVES WERE REALIZED BY A LITERATURE SEARCH, CONTACT WITH KNOWLEDGEABLE PERSONS, SURVEYS, AND INVITATIONAL SEMINAR, COMPLIMENTARY GRADUATE AND UNDERGRADUATE PROJECTS, AND BY RETAINING CONSULTANT REVIEWERS. THE VALIDITY, LOGIC, AND MERITS OF MODULAR DESIGN ARE WELL ESTABLISHED AND WIDELY ACCEPTED, AND PRESENT DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGICAL TRENDS SUGGEST ITS SUPPORT AND RESOLUTION OF PRACTICAL PROBLEMS FOR INCREASED IMPLEMENTATION. THE USE OF THE GRAPHIC TECHNIQUE OF MODULAR DRAFTING DEPENDS ON THIS ACCEPTANCE. A SYSTEM OF COMPUTER SYMBOLS AND LANGUAGE WILL LIKELY BECOME THE COMMUNICATION MEDIUM. THE DEVELOPMENT AND DEMONSTRATION OF SUCH A SYSTEM SUGGESTS SCHOOL BUILDINGS AS BEING AN APPROPRIATE VEHICLE. (MH)
