Considerations of Significance to Architects and Planners. Abstracted From National Institute of Mental Health Conferences on Social and Environmental Variables as Determinants of Mental Health.
Bloomfield, Byron C.
The statements and notations in this report have been abstracted from 12 interdisciplinary conferences conducted on subjects related to social and environmental variables as determinants of mental health plus one conference on recreation. This summary reflects the essence of statements that may have a direct or indirect bearing on considerations and criteria useful for the design and planning of facilities for human occupancy. Classification of statements as identified in the table of contents has been developed by the abstractor to represent a form to facilitate reference by architects and planners or students in these fields. The statements contained in the summary represent a significant beginning point in a process which may ultimately evolve valid criteria useful when planning for the needs of individuals, groups, or societies. The contents should provide useful subject outlines for student discussions related to designing for human needs, provide reference to subjects to be covered in class lectures or the abstracts could be appropriate for individual study and reference by architectural designers and planners.
