EFL College Newsletter 6. Fine Arts Facilities: Past, Present, Future.
Educational Facilities Labs., Inc., New York, NY.
Three major planning questions on developing a fine arts facility for higher education institutions are discussed--(1) whether to concentrate the arts in a single place or thread them through the campus, (2) the practicality of the multi-use space--the auditorium that can function as theater, concert and lecture hall and classrooms, and (3) the form and function of the theater. To focus on these questions, detailed observations are made on the new arts facilities at Macalester College, St. Paul, Minnesota, and Webster College, Webster Groves, Missouri. These two facilities sum up a broad range of planning considerations and represent widely divergent architectural solutions. Plans, diagrams and photographs graphically present the details of both solutions. To provide additional sources of information, twenty-six arts facilities existing at colleges and universities throughout the United States are listed and briefly described. Project descriptions are related to student enrollment totals. (BN)
