The New Campus in Britain--Ideas of Consequence for the United States.
Dober, Richard P.
A revolution in planning was triggered by a report of the special committee on education which investigated the availability of places in relation to student enrollment projection. Six new universities were constructed as a result with an emphasis on design. The design was developed to help solve the dilemma of "belonging" at large institutions. This was done by development of the concept of a continuous teaching environment. This concept describes a physical form that preserves communication and contact between all parts of the institution while allowing external accretion and internal change. Its essential features are geared to--(1) conformity with educational philosophy of maximum interdisciplinary contact, (2) integration of living and working areas, (3) separation of vehicular and pedestrian ways, (4) largely self-sufficient urban community, (5) optimum contrast between development and surrounding site, (6) a 24-hour university, and (7) opportunity of limitless expansion. Photographs and diagrams illustrate this concept in the case of each of the six institutions. This document previously announced as ED 014870. (HH)
