Education and Architecture in the 20th Century. The Design Workshop Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology (Ottawa, November 18-19, 1969).
Ontario Dept. of Education, Toronto. School Planning and Building Research Section.
A number of group reports, speeches, and collections of notes have been compiled from a design workshop which dealt with the development of college facilities. The emphasis is particularly upon the recently formed local college system in the Canadian province of Ontario. Problems involved in the formulation of this system are related to considerations of the urban environment in which these institutions must exist. Some specific architectural questions are dealt with as aspects of university development and include--(1) the systems approach to design, (2) contracting methods, (3) planning and finances, (4) the importance of student housing, and (5) a view towards the future.
