Justin, J. Karl
Variables and parameters affecting architectural planning and audiovisual systems selection for lecture halls and other learning spaces are surveyed. Interrelationships of factors are discussed, including--(1) design requirements for modern educational techniques as differentiated from cinema, theater or auditorium design, (2) general hall geometry and seating plan as determined by the character of events, audience, and projection angles, (3) general acoustics, (4) need for integrating architectural design with selection of projection equipment and screens, (5) the effect of front and rear projection, and (6) lighting, audio, and projection control. Guidelines for future research and bases for examination of economic optimums are given. (RK)
