Stephen Leacock Educational Complex for the Scarborough Board of Education.
Abram and Ingleson, Architects, Don Mills (Ontario).
The first Canadian attempt to provide a comprehensive educational environment to satisfy the demands for "flexibility" in the educational continuum from kindergarten to grade 13 is discussed. The complex integrates three levels of learning into one campus, providing facilities for collegiate pupils, senior school students, and junior school students. An academic structure was designed to--(1) accommodate present educational needs and provide for change in future educational philosophy and methods, (2) utilize new component systems, and (3) share common facilities. All three facilities are grouped on one site, which allows for more meaningful site relationships between schools in terms of outdoor space and sports facilities, pedestrian circulation, mechanical distribution, service access and community use, and the physical manifestation of a "student village" concept.
