U.S. Office of Education Post-Doctoral Fellowship, 1968-69. Summary Report.
During his postdoctoral fellowship year, Dr. Rand taught a course on psychology and the physical environment at the Columbia University School of Architecture, worked with the New York City Office of West-Midtown Planning, completed a conceptual design of urban housing, and obtained support for a 3-year study of the fellowship between housing design and the social life of residents of public housing in New York City. He also visited several urban planning laboratories, published articles in several architectural journals, and began writing a book, "The Social Meaning of Space," to be completed by 1971. Dr. Rand felt that the primary value of the fellowship year was that it demonstrated the feasibility of integrating study of psychology and architecture, and thus laid the groundwork for a new career orientation. (An appendix contains a reprint of an article by Dr. Rand. A second article referred to in the report is not included due to marginal legibility.) (RT)
