THE ACTIVITY/SPACE, A LEAST COMMON DENOMINATOR FOR ARCHITECTURAL PROGRAMMING.
HAVILAND, DAVID S.
TWO INTERRELATED PROBLEM AREAS OF ARCHITECTURAL PROGRAMING ARE DISCUSSED--(1) "NEEDS DEFINITION," AND (2) "NEEDS DOCUMENTATION AND COMMUNICATION". FUNDAMENTAL ISSUES AND WORK OF THE CENTER FOR ARCHITECTURAL RESEARCH ARE PRESENTED. ISSUES ARE THE FAILURE TO RECOGNIZE HOW, WHEN, AND IN WHAT FORM THE NEED WILL BE USED. CRITERIA FORMULATION MUST BE CONSIDERED IN TERMS OF "ORIGIN TO DESTINATION." AN INITIAL QUANTUM IS DEVELOPED--"THE ACTIVITY/SPACE." THIS IS DEFINED AS AN ACTIVITY WHICH TAKES UP SPACE AND HAS A GENERALLY COMMON SET OF FACILITY IMPLICATIONS. THE FILE CABINET APPROACH TO PROGRAMING, "COMMERCE," AND "PHYSICAL AFFINITY" ARE SUCCEEDING STEPS DISCUSSED ALONG WITH POSSIBLE COMPUTER IMPLICATIONS. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE AIA ARCHITECT-RESEARCHERS' CONFERENCE, GATLINBURG, TENNESSEE, OCTOBER 25, 1967. (RK)
