Towards a World University.
Architectural Design, p481-482, October 1965
The concept of a world university based on an international concept of education and cooperation is examined in terms of technological and social advances. The central concern of a world university would be with knowledge treated in world terms and so oriented as to be applied without regard to any restrictive local interest. The plan is not based on any specific geographic center, but on cooperation between a number of centers and/or integration of students and faculties. Background preparation in terms of mobility, international communication, and large-scale cooperative projects, as well as existing plans and prototype are mentioned. The material stresses the philosophical approaches inherent in such a concept. (MM)
