The design of Santa Fe Junior College is examined, beginning with the development of an educational philosophy. Subsequent design decisions are based largely upon this philosophy which emphasizes the development of the individual student and the fulfillment of his needs. Further, the need for flexibility is recognized and is an important aspect of the program. The concept of "houses" is developed in order to meet the various program requirements. In these units several educational functions are combined in order to give the student an interrelated educational experience. Site analysis is presented in detail as are architectural plans and sketches of the final proposal. The relationship of the plans to the educational program is reviewed as being an important part of the design expression. (RS)
