Educational Park, A Case Study Based on Planning and Design for Anniston, Alabama.
Caudill, Rowlett and Scott, Architects, Houston, TX.
A concentrated study undertaken by Caudill, Rowlett & Scott, and this report documents the findings and recommends master planning guidelines for an educational park in Anniston, Alabama. The park will encompass the spectrum of education from early school to two years of college. The proposed educational park will profit by the experience of its predecessors and approach the ideal educational park. It should achieve economies through improved scheduling and shared facilities, and thus provide more specialized instructional facilities. It should be a community center for people of all ages and be a symbol for the importance of education in the community. Finally, it should generate a mix of people of all ages which, coupled with a strong planning concept and the ability of the individual to proceed at his own pace, would insure the individual's exposure to the flow of ideas and methods around him. Site plan description, schematics of the various phases of the sample solution, photographs of the scale model, floor plans, and perspective drawings are included. (RK)
