Campus Planning Study for the Ohio State University. Phase I, Alternative Basic Schemes.
Caudill, Rowlett and Scott, Architects, Houston, TX.
This document identifies some of the problems encountered in developing a master plan for a state university. Basic policies are suggested for guiding the future development of the Ohio State University campus. Two alternative planning schemes are recommended. Future enrollment and space needs, various curriculum program organizations, traffic, urban development problems involving the university and the adjoining community, and present campus facilities are evaluated. Seven alternative schemes are derived from the two basic concepts of campus planning, centralization and decentralization. Design proposals are evaluated and graphics are used to illustrate the proposals. Among the evaluation criteria for the two campus plans proposed (centralized and decentralized), are decentralization of service courses, relationship of campus plans to the adjacent community, closing of campus streets to traffic, educational needs given planning priority, and automobile parking restricted to non academic campus areas. A bibliography of OSU campus studies and projected campus graphs are included. (RP)
