Duke University Campus Planning Study. Phase I.
Caudill, Rowlett and Scott, Architects, Houston, TX.
The goals of this study are to--(1) analyze the educational program and determine the adequacy of the present physical plant to accommodate that program, (2) identify the basic disparities between program and plant, and point out the physical plant inadequacies, (3) develop several alternative solutions for resolving these disparities, and (4) delineate and explain the implications of four basic alternative concepts for future development of the physical plant. The basic deficiency of the present physical plant was its location on two separate sites about 1 mile apart. Plans based on these concepts resulted in four basic alternatives for integrating and developing the section between the two campuses. The four alternatives are evaluated in light of the educational program, cost, and design. The plan recommended is a blend of two of the basic alternatives. Specific decision point considerations were related to land use, landscaping, preservation of natural surroundings, parking, traffic circulation, and building proximity. (HH)
