Joint Occupancy: Profiles of Significant Schools.
The concept of schools that pay for themselves by sharing facilities with other occupants is known variously as joint occupancy or mixed or multiple use of land and buildings. A financial saving is the obvious advantage of combining schools with housing, commercial space (retail or office), or community services and offices. In addition, joint occupancy creates new kinds of urban environments that blend schools with communities composed of people of varied ethnic groups and income levels. This document illustrates graphically 10 schools utilizing joint occupancy; some schools are already in use, others are still in the planning stage. (Photographs may reproduce poorly.) (Author/MLF)
