Perkins and Will, Architects, Chicago, IL.; New York State Educational Radio and Television Association, Albany.
THE PROGRAM FOR A JUNIOR-SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL FACILITY REQUIRED A ONE-STORY BUILDING FOR 1000 PUPILS WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR ACCOMMODATING AN INCREASE OF 200 PUPILS. EMPHASIS WAS TO BE PLACED ON--(1) SHARED SPACES, WHICH WOULD OFFER EVERY GRADE LEVEL COMPLETE PHYSICAL EDUCATION, AUDITORIUM, SCIENCE, ARTS, AND LIBRARY FACILITIES, (2) SEPARATION OF JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH CLASSROOMS, (3) SEPARATION OF ACADEMIC AREA CIRCULATION FROM THAT OF PUBLIC AND COMMUNITY USAGE AREAS, (4) PROVISION OF ADAPTIVE FLEXIBILITY FOR INDIVIDUAL SCHOOL DESIGN, AND (5) STANDARDIZATION OF MATERIALS AND METHODS TO ACHIEVE ECONOMY. FLEXIBILITY WAS ACHIEVED THROUGH THE USE OF A FIVE BAY UNIT. SIX OF THESE UNITS PROVIDE THE CAPACITY FOR VARYING ARRANGEMENTS AROUND THE AUDITORIUM-GYMNASIUM MASS. OUTDOOR TEACHING COURTS ARE THEN FORMED ADJACENT TO THE STUDY-RESOURCE CENTER SEPARATING THE JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH CLASSROOMS. PROJECT AREAS EMPHASIZED ARE--(1) CONSTRUCTION DATA, (2) STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS, (3) MATERIAL CONSIDERATIONS, AND (4) MECHANICAL SYSTEMS. A FLOOR PLAN, ELEVATION, AND PERSPECTIVE ARE INCLUDED. (MH)
