Plan for a System of Educational Parks in Chicago.
Chicago Urban League, IL. Dept. of Research.
An overview of the school building program in Chicago in the 1960's and the long-range school facilities program is followed by a discussion of various planning criteria. In considering the educational parks concept and its implementation in Chicago, emphasis is given to--(1) types of educational parks, (2) educational park design in relation to a city-wide system, (3) the dispersal concept of educational parks, (4) the phasing of educational parks, and (5) alternative forms that educational parks in Chicago could assume. The plan is given in a conceptual and schematic form, and specific sites or architectural design features are not suggested; however, several recommendations toward implementation are presented. (FS)
