Planning the Technology Area: Its Inflexibility by Weight of Mechanical Servicing.
Stockman, Carl E.
The problems of planning and designing educational facilities are outlined with regard to the ever-changing educational programs, teaching methods and technological facility needs. Problems of flexibility are concerned with how much flexibility is required and how much flexibility can be economically justified. Requirements for flexible school design are given with three example plans. Shop and laboratory flexibility are discussed with emphasis on flexibility and environmental controls systems, building services and utilities, and building equipment and interior spaces. (TG)
