Radical New Programs for University Living.
Robb, George
This paper, in making several proposals for improving university design to meet the needs of students, urges that students be given a greater role in planning physical facilities. The following proposals are made: (1) No rigid line of demarcation should be drawn between living and working facilities; (2) the design should provide for a maximum number of students, teachers, and staff to live within the university complex; (3) budgeted money should be expended in construction of self-contained apartments rather than in the building of halls, common rooms, or large central libraries; (4) the university should merge with its urban environment and represent an "urban solution to an urban problem"; and (5) academic space should never be assigned permanently to any one discipline.
