Educational Thoroughfare.
Barthelme, Donald
Junior College Journal, v23 n5 p16-20 Jan 63
Architect Donald Barthelme expresses a personal concept of an architectural-educational philosophy and presents his design concept for a new kind of campus. He classifies two types of architecture--(1) architecture which places the opportunity to build ahead of any obligation to people, and (2) architecture which places a primary interest and obligation to the human needs of people. The second approach seeks to get architecture out of man's way but at the same time accepts the obligation of exerting a force in supporting human existence. The design of a junior college campus for a maximum of 4,000 students is also presented. The solution offered is called a "Street". Its purpose is to provide a campus where every kind of knowledge is presented to every kind of learner in ways that make it impossible for the student to conceive of his speciality as isolated from the sum total of human knowledge.
