The architectural program is defined as a means of communication with the client by Edwin Cromwell, and the programming process is detailed by John Garber. Also provided are David Ray's and John Truemper's consideration of the programer and architect in action and J. Eugene McKee's treatment of planning for community facilities. Two forwards, excerpts from informal discussions, and a list of registrants are included. (JD)
