The main trends are summarized of the current practices in the design and planning of modern primary schools. Several of the recent developments in design are--(1) the educational approach to design, (2) new plan forms, (3) new methods of plan analysis, (4) site analysis and design, and (5) new attitudes toward the design of communal spaces, teaching spaces, and administrative rooms. Nineteen plans of recent primary schools are reproduced along with a brief description and plan analysis of each project. Many of the projects adopted the component building systems approach to design. (TC)
