Because of rising costs and rapid educational change, the architectural design of a school becomes important to the accomplishment of an educational program. The contemporary architect must design a building with one eye on its construction and maintenance costs and the other on new materials and products and on expanding educational programs. This document presents the ideal elementary school design conceptualized by the Dade County, Florida, Board of Public Instruction as one that incorporates recent educational developments into its specifications. Specific desiderata are given for space requirements and utilization, lighting, resource centers, construction materials, furnishings, storage areas, food service, and other facilities. (RA)
