High School: The Process and the Place. A Report.
This report invites examination of what the schoolhouse is and what it can be -- an instrument to equip young people to cope with an increasingly complex world, enable them to contribute to the common good, and help them find joy in their own existence. The first section discusses traditional school design and how the knowledge explosion has made the structure and the organization of the school obsolete. The next section considers the values and purposes that an educational facility design should support. The idea of dynamic management of the school environment is proposed in the open space concept, as well as the kind of planning necessary for the successful utilization of open space schools. The concluding section discusses planning procedures for a live environment. (Photographs may reproduce poorly.) (Author/MLF)
