Systems Building Techniques. Analysis and Bibliography Series, No. 15.
Baas, Alan M.
This review presents an analysis of the literature concerning the growth of systems building programs in education and reports on the conclusions of numerous architects and educators that the systems-built school may well be the only cost-effective answer available to today's educational facilities needs. The terms "building systems" and "systems building" are defined and clarified, and the dependency of the systems approach on interfacing with other subsystems is discussed. The literature is divided into and discussed under the headings: systems approach; building systems and modular design; university residential building systems; academic building systems; European systems; information resources; journal coverage; and evaluation, refinement, and application. Publications dealing with school construction programs in California, Florida, and Toronto are reviewed briefly and separately for each area. A 57-item bibliography of relevant literature concludes the presentation. (Author)
