IN WHAT SHAPE IS YOUR COMMUNITY COLLEGE.
HUGHES, JAMES M.
ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN OF COMMUNITY COLLEGES SHOULD BE RELATED TO THE UNIQUE CHARACTER OF THE INSTITUTIONS. THE COMMUTER COLLEGE CONCEPT SUGGESTS DRIVE-IN FACILITIES, ADJACENT PARKING AND INSTRUCTIONAL FACILITIES, AND BILEVEL CAMPUSES. THE VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL EMPHASIS SUGGESTS CENTRALIZING THESE FACILITIES AND MAKING THEM SHOWROOMS. INNOVATIVE IDEAS INCLUDE AN "ENDLESS" CAMPUS, AN AIRPORT COLLEGE, A "SURROUNDER" COLLEGE. ARCHITECTS AND COLLEGE PLANNERS MIGHT WELL CONSIDER DESIGN OF A CAMPUS PRIMARILY FOR NIGHT USE. PROPER DESIGN CAN ELIMINATE BARRIERS BETWEEN THE COLLEGE AND THE COMMUNITY--PHYSICAL, SOCIOLOGICAL, ECONOMIC, CULTURAL, AND POLITICAL. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "AMERICAN SCHOOL AND UNIVERSITY," VOLUME 40, NUMBER 6, FEBRUARY 1968. (WO)
