Soundstop. An Experimental Student Housing Study.
Ontario Dept. of Education, Toronto. School Planning and Building Research Section.
The design development of a housing facility for deaf and blind students is reviewed in considerable detail. Initially traditional architectural solutions to the creation of dormitory space and accompanying circulation patterns are examined for their effect upon the lives of the inhabitants. The subsequent design progression which is presented is based largely upon desired alterations in the social and academic life styles of the residents. Each space in the final design is dealt with as to its development, layout, and functional goals. Interior furnishings for various spaces are shown in several different schemes to meet the wide range of needs for the 6- to 20-year age bracket that will be served by the facility. Photographs and drawings are used extensively as visual aids to explain the design process. (RS)
