Building for School and Community. V: Sweden.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
In recent years a number of industrialized countries have developed projects that in one way or another associate school buildings with community facilities designed for different functions or uses. The texts brought together in the present volume concern Sweden, which acted as the host country for a symposium held in 1976 on "School and Community Building in Relation to Urban Dynamics." The papers are preceded by a brief description of the general context and trends of coordination in Sweden. Three of the papers are devoted to experiences in Goteborg, Sweden's second largest city. The first, "Policies for the Provision of Facilities in the Development of the City of Goteborg," examines the general problems of facilities planning in a big city. It is followed by a descriptive study, "Rannebergen Centrum," an example of the way in which the facilities problems of new housing estates in the periphery of a city are handled. The third paper, "Planning Process of the Coordinated Centre of Vastra Frolunda," is more methodological and describes how the lessons learned from previous experience were applied to a new project. The volume ends with an account of two recent projects in Upplands Vasby that show clearly that coordination does not necessarily have to result in large complexes but can be achieved also on a small scale in the form of dispersed neighborhood units.
