Still Sits the Schoolhouse...But Less So. AIA School Plant Studies.
Gores, Harold B.
Journal of American Institute of Architects, Dec 1963
School design innovations which are presently realized or anticipated in response to changing demands on the educational process are discussed. Major topics include independent study, variety and flexibility in school spaces, school atmosphere, sound control and carpeting. New approaches in school building design are related to changes which are suggested for curriculum structures and the general approach to education. Discussion and evaluation is briefly provided for a number of examples of innovative school designs, including photographs, drawings, and floor plans. (MM)
