DORMS AT BERKELEY, AN ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS.
SILVERSTEIN, MURRAY; VAN DER RYN, SIM
THIS MONOGRAPH DEALS WITH AN ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS OF THE DORMS AT BERKELEY AND IS ORGANIZED INTO FIVE CHAPTERS. CHAPTER ONE REVIEWS SOME OF THE CONDITIONS THAT HAVE PROMPTED ARCHITECTS AND PLANNERS TO LOOK FOR NEW APPROACHES TO THEIR WORK AND SKETCHES THE CONTEXT OF THE BERKELEY CASE STUDY. CHAPTER TWO DESCRIBES THE HISTORY AND SETTING OF INSTITUTIONAL HOUSING AT BERKELEY. CHAPTER THREE DISCUSSES THE ANALYSIS USED AND FINDINGS DEVELOPED REGARDING STUDENT LIFE IN THE HIGH-RISE DORM ENVIRONMENT. THIS MATERIAL COMES PRIMARILY FROM THE STUDIES OF THE BERKELEY DORMITORIES AND FROM A SURVEY OF OTHER INSTITUTIONS. THE CHAPTER PRESENTS A SERIES OF DESIGN ISSUES DEVELOPED FROM THE RESEARCH. EACH ISSUE SUMS UP AN AREA OF CONFLICT BETWEEN WHAT STUDENT LIVING SEEMS TO REQUIRE OF THE PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT AND WHAT THAT ENVIRONMENT ACTUALLY PROVIDES. CHAPTER FOUR PRESENTS SOME CONCEPTUAL SOLUTIONS TO THE ISSUES DISCUSSED IN THE PREVIOUS CHAPTER. CHAPTER FIVE DISCUSSES METHODS FOR ANALYZING HOW A PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT IS USED. THE SETTING, TECHNIQUES, AND THE PROBLEMS AND LIMITATIONS ARE DEALT WITH. IT IS THE INTENTION OF THE AUTHORS TO REACH, THROUGH THE CASE STUDY APPROACH, A BROAD SPECTRUM OF PEOPLE AND PROFESSIONS RESPONSIBLE FOR SHAPING INSTITUTIONAL PROGRAMS AND ENVIRONMENTS. (RK)
